This English-Irish all boy pop band is based in London, and consists of band members Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson. They became a Simon Cowell creation after they appeared on the British show, The X Factor. Some consider them the new “British Invasion” group of this era. One Direction proves that there is still room for clean-cut, puppy love with a cute boy, or in this case, five cute boys - band. Their first album, Up All Night, gave them one of the best selling singles of all time with “What Makes You Beautiful.” The latest album, Midnight Memories, is due out November 2013 and an expected, “Where We Are Now” tour will follow. The boys present themselves as they are; teenage boys that act goofy and spend a lot of time on social media, which is a large part of their success. They do all their own Tweeting (#WhereWeAreEurope) and much of their music was discovered using social media.
