It’s clear that everyone has been mourning the loss of One Direction since they made the decision to go on hiatus back in 2016, but Simon Cowell is on the case with an attempt to fill the void. PRETTYMUCH is Cowell’s latest discovery, and they’re already taking the music world by storm.
Up until last year, the five lads were attempting solo careers until Cowell merged them together with the hope of creating the next big boy band (sound familiar?). The band features Austin Porter (19), Brandon Arreaga (17), Edwin Honoret (18), Nick Mara (19) and Zion Kuwonu (18); four from the US and one from Canada.

Their latest single, ‘Would You Mind’, was written by hit songwriter Savan Kotecha, responsible for some of the biggest pop songs in the last five years from the likes of One Direction, Ariana Grande and The Weeknd. The band has already been causing a stir in the land of music, after reaching the top 10 on Spotify’s Viral 50 and being selected by Apple Music for their Artist Of The Week.
So what can we expect from them? They’re set to make their debut performance at the 2017 Teen Choice Awards on August 13th which will be aired on Fox at 8PM from the University of Southern California’s Galen Centre. They will also be playing alongside Louis Tomlinson who will be performing his new single ‘Back To You’, so this is not to be missed.
Keep your eyes on these boys as they look like they’re set for big things. Let us know what you think of the new single in the comments section below.
