The Click Five found one another at the prestigious Berklee College of Music, and formed in 2003. Opening for acts like McFly, Ashlee Simpson, the Backstreet boys and promoting their two albums Greetings from Imrie House and their latest release Modern Minds and Pastimes, it seems that these boys have been on the road for the last five years.
The girls were giddy for their matching mod outfits and their super sprayed hair, as well as their preppy pop tunes. It seemed as if they had been taken straight off the assembly line and put onto the stage, even their music seemed a little too perfect. All the right chords and hooks, yet lacking in any real substance
The kids in the crowd loved Flipside, Just The Girl and Jenny with their big pop sounds. I loved their acoustic numbers Don’t Let Me Go, I’m Getting Over You (although it was slightly slaughtered by a mouth organ?? Seriously!!!!), and There You Are, which were a nice change from the mash of pop and rock that sometimes seemed a little too big for the boys!
Overall the clan of kiddies with their glow sticks seemed to dig The Click Five, which to me are a mix between the retro Beach Boys and the more updated Backstreet Boys pop/rock sound. These boys are only young and I do take my hat off to the fact that they’re out there doing what they love and their audience seems to love them. I look forward to hearing more mature and acoustic tunes from these lads.
