Ashton Irwin is teasing his upcoming solo debut with new single, ‘Have U Found What Ur Looking For’.
It’s the latest taster from the 5 Seconds of Summer member’s record ‘Superbloom’, which will arrive on 23rd October.
The full-length was recorded after Ashton noted an empty touring and recording schedule with 5SOS at the start of lockdown. Made in his LA home with his producer husemate Matt Pauling, a press release lists influences including “Foo Fighters, Nick Drake, Helmet, Silverchair, Stone Temple Pilots, My Bloody Valentine, & Curve”.
“We wrote the song in an hour and it inspired my mission statement for my whole year,” says Ashton. “We were like, ‘oh my God, we could actually make a record in quarantine’. It made us chase it down like a pack of wolves.
“With its mix of heavy guitars, dreamy soundscapes, indelible hook and lyrics about finding your way out of the abyss, it set a template for the record both sonically and thematically. It has a positive uplifting tone but it’s also about being in a fog of depression”.
