5 Seconds of Summer dish the dirt on ‘English Love Affair’

English love affair is probably one of my favourite songs on the album! It’s so indescribable this song. I can not even put into words how incredible this song is and how well it is written!


Michael and Ashton went on a two hour trip to Bournemouth to write this song. Ashton was sat in the back of the car and thought of a football chant, even though he doesn’t particularly like football.

When they got there they played about with a few bass riffs and Ashton did his chant that he came up with in the car. And that is how English Love Affair was born.

The boys think it’s the dance track off the album and Luke did say it was a “winner.”


I would have to agree. It’s a very well written song, well done boys!
