Who the hell are Why Don’t We?! You’ll be smitten with this cute boy band

Meet your new faves

As far as cute boy bands go, this bunch of lads will quite literally sweep you off your feet. Why Don’t We are the latest boy band we’re obsessing over here at MP! and trust us when we say that they’re ‘Something Different’.

The band is made up of Daniel Seavey, Zach Herron, Corbyn Besson, Jonah Marais and Jack Avery, and if our awful Dad joke didn’t give it away, the boy’s latest single ‘Something Different’ is an absolute belter.

We’ve been dancing to it non stop since it came out – so much so that we’re beginning to get some seriously questionable looks from people at the bus stop. Oops. Don’t blame us, okay?! It’s just too darn catchy.

Here’s everything else you need to know about Why Don’t We…

1. They love good cuddle

If the boys’ Instagram is anything to go by, they love a good cuddle. Bless!

2. They also take absolute *fire* selfies
