Does anyone really care about Lawson!? I'm aware of their name and aware of about 2 tracks from them.
Anytime I've seen them on tv they've always come across as a 90s boy band (a bad one at that).
Their music has failed to make an impression on me and they come across to me as a bit BLAH!!!!!

What do we know about them?
How many songs do they actually have?
How many members can U name!??

Truth is the average person knows nothing about them and surely they're doomed for disaster..... Yeah??
I mean, they bring NOTHING to the music industry.

They're simply bigged up by social media and the press... Conor Maynard is also the same. I don't understand it either.


Both pretty bland and pointless.

I'm far from a fan but they sing live and can play their instruments, if they had the backing that 1D or The Wanted have they would be everywhere...

i know who i'd rather see/hear more of.

I thought they had the same management/label as the Wanted?

Yeah, Lawson were run by Global Talent (or something) which is basically a company that owns Capital FM and have connections to other radio stations and TV shows. The Wanted are on the same company (hence why they're always on Capital) and so were Cover Drive but they flopped and I think the deal got cancelled for them.

I don't know much about them and only heard one of their songs but it's dreadful. I don't know the names of any of the members. I don't understand why they're so popular

They can't xD

I had the pleasure of seeing them in August, they were absolutely fantastic, When She Was Mine is probably the best song of the year for me

That's all I knew too. That and I read somewhere When She Was Mine is about said relationship.

I know right! They seem so old school, like they belong in that wave of guitar driven boy bands back from 2003-2005.

That's about the limit of my knowledge too. I doubt they'll be around for long.

They're like early Maroon 5 and The Script, just very bland and forgettable. Pretty boys who can play instruments semi-decently and hold a tune. I'll pass.

Their songs are clearly designed to make young girls swoon. But they are better than The Wanted.

Now there is a name that I would gladly never hear again. That kid has absolutely no identity in any way shape or form.
