Musical Style

 

McFly's style has been dubbed by themselves and others in the music business as "Nu-Pop" but possibly more commonly considered pop or pop rock. Despite the band's pop image and reputation, it is clear there are musical differences from other contemporary boybands. Influence is apparent from bands such as The Beach Boys and Beatles' (particularly Paul McCartney-penned) material. Lyrically however, their style is closer, though not quite similar, to other contemporary boybands such as Busted or Son of Dork or pop singers like Jesse McCartney from the United States and Rhoderick Gates from Australia. McFly are often considered similar in style to the now defunct Busted, with whom they shared a record label and were generally considered to be friends. However, though similar, the latter evidence greater influence from pop punk bands such as Blink 182 and Sum 41 than 1960s' rock, in addition to their clear pop overtones.

 

 

Chart Success

 

McFly's first single, "5 Colours In Her Hair", entered the UK singles chart at Number One in April 2004 and stayed there for two weeks. In July 2004 their second single, "Obviously", also reached the top, but only for one week. This was followed by the album Room On The 3rd Floor debuting at Number One in the UK albums chart. The album broke records as they were the youngest band since The Beatles to have a debut album enter the charts in the top position. The third single, "That Girl", was released on September 6, 2004 and lost the battle for the top spot to Brian McFadden's "Real To Me". It went to number three, despite topping midweek sales charts. The fourth single, "Room On The Third Floor" (the album's title track), was released on November 15, 2004 and made number five.

 

In March 2005, McFly released "All About You/You've Got A Friend", a double A side of their sixth and seventh singles and the first release from their second album, Wonderland, which features a 60-piece Orchestra. The single reached Number One for a week on March 13 and the profits from the single were donated to Comic Relief. The video for "You've Got A Friend" was shot in Uganda, which McFly visited for the charity appeal. They completed their second arena tour in October 2005. The second single from Wonderland, "I'll Be Ok" was released in the UK on the 15 August 2005 and scored them their fourth UK Number one. The album itself was released on 29 August 2005, debuting at Number one. The third single from Wonderland, "I Wanna Hold You", was released October 17, giving them their sixth top three single, missing out on number one to the Arctic Monkeys. Their fourth single, "Ultraviolet/The Ballad of Paul K" was released on 12th December and reached number nine, the worst chart-performance of any of their singles to date.

 

On April 1, 2006, they did a performance on CD:USA (the US version of CD:UK) promoting "I've Got You", a track from their U.S album "Just My Luck". It was their first television performance in the US.

 

The bands U.S debut album was release in the states on 22 May 2006 but has yet to make much of an impact there. The promo video for "I've Got You" is soon to be available for download on ITunes video.

 

They have just completed rehearsing and have started recording sessions for their third album, which whom's working title is "Back In Town". A new single, "Please, Please", is scheduled for release in the UK in July 2006, with a third album planned by the end of the year.
