The guys – Beau Brooks, 20, Jai Brooks, 18, Luke Brook, 18, Daniel Sahyoune, 19, and James Yammouni, 17 – also talked to the magazine about the success of their videos, being signed to MTV, and not taking everything so seriously.
Beau on their videos becoming successful: “November 4th, 2011. It went kind of viral. We uploaded a video, and MTV and Sony saw that we had a large gathering of girls because we did a meet and greet at Luna Park, Melbourne. We expected 200 people and we got 6,000 people which was nuts. So Sony and MTV saw, and they signed us.”
Beau on not talking things too seriously: “We all make our own fun. It’s fun to watch other artists and see how serious they are and look at us and seeing how fun and stupid we are. I guess that’s why our fans like us as well because we’re not always all serious.”
James on touring and meeting fans: “Massive adrenaline rush. We had to do like 25 cities in something ridiculous — like, 30 days. The whole thing was just a flash and an adrenaline rush. It was so good going around the world and meeting new people and seeing how they live.”
