The Vamps' 'I Found A Girl' named as The Guardian's Song of the Week
Britain's The Guardian newspaper has declared 'I Found A Girl' by The Vamps its Song of the Week.
Journalist Paul MacInnes explained that although recent editorials may have suggested the "boyband was dead", this particular song proves the theory to be wrong because it's catchy, upbeat, and is about "males being respectful to females".
He wrote: "I read a thinkpiece the other week about how the boyband was dead. How something something masculinity something something post-gender power structure something something Mike Nesmith’s bobble hat. Look it up, it’ll be on the internet."
"Anyway, 3:12 in the company of the Vamps suggests this theory could yet prove false. I Found A Girl has everything a boyband track should – catchiness, major-key upbeatery, males being respectful to females. But it’s also as 2016 as it comes, being about a boy falling in love with a girl who turns out to be gay, but that’s ok and there’s no reason they can’t be friends. Includes the lyric, “Baby you’re mistaken, I’m not into bacon,” which makes me worry for the singer’s penis."
The Vamps, meanwhile, have been confirmed to perform at this year's Capital FM Summertime Ball, which will take place at London's Wembley Stadium on June 11. Other acts on the bill include Zayn Malik, Nick Jonas, Jess Glynne, Will.i.Am, The Vamps, Years & Years, Tinie Tempah, Lukas Graham, Zara Larsson, Little Mix, Nathan Sykes, Flo Rida, Mike Posner, Craig David and Sigala.
