Gimme Five: The Jonas Brothers' Best Moments

Wednesday, 05 June 2019 Written by Helen Payne

Rejoice, pop lover: the Jonas Brothers are heading to the UK in 2020! It’s been six long distraught-filled years since their split in 2013, but finally the boys are back with a new album, ‘Happiness Begins’, a memoir and even an Amazon documentary called Chasing Happiness (which FYI is all we’ve been trying to do since their breakup).

While you recover from your recent fainting episode that definitely didn’t have anything to do with this stupidly exciting news, why don’t you check out some of the bros’ best moments, from their Disney days to the joyful current day.

S.O.S - 2007

It begins. After playing endless school assemblies, being dropped from Sony and even having to cut ties with their church for making “punk rock”, the Jonas Brothers managed to sign a deal with Disney, which skyrocketed their career. S.O.S from their self-titled sophomore album was their first top 20 hit on the Billboard Hot 100, and good lord it’s a cracker. The video also features who we think is Kevin rocking some typical 2000s gear — an old school Blackberry, a flat cap and a scarf — while undertaking some of the best acting you’ll see this century. Skip 50 seconds into the video. Per. Fec. Tion.

Play My Music at Camp Rock - 2008

That same summer, Disney’s Camp Rock movie came out, and on that day, every single pre-teen’s life changed forever. Our favourite bros announced to the world that music is in their soul, and they’re never letting go, oh no. Nobody seemed to question the fact that there’s no drum kit on stage, but that’s not important here. What IS important is the catchy af song. Just let them play their music, alright?

Pushin’ Me Away - 2008

Hello, we’re going all pop-punk! Taken from their third album ‘A Little Bit Longer’, the JoBros’ pop sensibilities took a darker turn, moving towards a more anxious and overdriven sound, and we love it. So did the general public, as the track reached number 16 in the US charts. To give it some context, the guys recorded this while opening for Miley Cyrus on her Hannah Montana: Best Of Both Worlds tour. What a time to be alive.

What Did I Do To Your Heart - 2009

Things went personal in 2009. ‘Lines, Vines and Trying Times’ was effectively a journal for the sibling trio, delving into personal experiences and what they’d been through, which, as one of the biggest boy bands in the world, was a lot. Their last release before the sorrowful split, tensions were already beginning to show. But that didn’t stop them releasing banger after banger, including the country-inflected What Did I Do To Your Heart, with some mental violins and harmonicas going on. It’s THE best.

Sucker - 2019

After far too long, their comeback single Sucker dropped in February, and damn are we a sucker for it. A funky number that slid into the number one spot with ease, the song is built around a simple chord sequence and some weak-at-the-knees high pitched vocals from Joe (our favourite). Our boys are all grown up!

Luckily for us, the JoBros have never been shy of some cheesy lyrics, and we get those in abundance here: “We go together better than birds of a feather, you and me we change the weather”. In the next verse, “You’re the medicine and the pain, the tattoo inside my brain”. Someone got a rhyming dictionary for Christmas.

The Jonas Brothers embark on the Happiness Begins Tour in the US this year and in the UK and Europe in 2020. Tickets for the UK shows go on sale at 10am on June 6.

'Happiness Begins' will arrive on June 7 through Polydor.

Fri 09 Aug 2019
Lana Del Rey really has nailed her hazy, retro vibe and a nostalgic sense of sadness. Far from the usual feel-good factor of pop hits, the New York vocalist and songwriter has carved a niche for herself in the shimmery, summery genre of luxurious, melancholic songs that we like to call sadcore.

Lana Del Rey - Norman Fucking Rockwell! (Album Review)
Thu 05 Sep 2019
When Lana Del Rey’s Video Games attained viral status in 2011, it felt entirely plausible that her success would be a flash in the pan. Many critics (often male) derided her as a contrived, inauthentic pop star whose cinematic melancholia could not translate to long term appeal. Eight years and four albums later, they’ve been proven wrong about her longevity, and yet Del Rey’s multi-textured inauthenticity has flourished, and become a kind of defining brand. Sometimes you can be wrong and right at the same time.
