Watch 5SOS Flawlessly Cover Bring Me the Horizon's "Drown"

5 Seconds of Summer perfectly perform the song acoustically, orchestra in tow

BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge series asks some of the world's biggest artists to cover other huge hits—think of it as really complicated, sober karaoke. Last month Selena Gomez tackled Magic!'s "Rude," and that's just the tip of the iceberg: Who could forget Taylor Swift's spot-on indie folk voice for Vance Joy's "Riptide"? Or Ed Sheeran's perfect cover of 5 Seconds of Summer's "She Looks So Perfect"?

Today it's the 5SOS guys who've taken a turn at Live Lounge with a radical rendition of metalcore faves Bring Me the Horizon's "Drown."

The guys take turns adopting frontman Oli Sykes dramatic vocals. They do the whole thing acoustically...with a string-quartet. A very adult move, boys!
