The culture of boy bands has remained as quite a fad since the early 1990s. It is just adorable to see groups of boys dancing and singing to entertain, and a majority of the female population is hypnotized as avid followers. Before, mainstream music has been doused with names such as the Backstreet Boys, A1, New Kids from the Block and Boyzone, while the people of today get to experience the craze brought about by One Direction and The 1975.
Transcending through time and music’s ever changing demands, the boy band culture is rooted deeply in our subconscious and one way or another, we crave to witness great acts to quench this thirst. Fans behold the boy band named Lukas Graham, and you’d wonder where they have been all this time.
Aside from chocolates and the prevalence of house music, Denmark is now known due to the attention Lukas Graham is getting. Focusing on catchy genres such as pop rock and soul, there’s a lot of favorable and ecstatic feedback given to the group.
Since the waning of One Direction and other boy bands going off the radar, Lukas Graham is obviously rekindling the boy band craze and is now talked about by a lot of radio shows and chart listing sites within Denmark and Europe.

The boy band became known initially when they uploaded two Youtube videos of themselves and made covers of songs Drunk in the Morning and Criminal Mind. As expected, these videos whirled around social media like a storm and reached a wider audience. Copenhagen Records immediately showed interest in Lukas Graham and signed them up as new artists to manage.

Easily, the album reached quadruple-platinum status in Denmark alone, paraded with smash tracks Ordinary Things, Better Than Yourself and Drunk in the Morning.
