"Amnesia" is a song by Australian rock band 5 Seconds of Summer, taken from their self-titled debut album 5 Seconds of Summer (2014). The mellow pop rock[1] slow jam was announced as a new single during a live stream by the band on 1 July 2014, and was released to American contemporary hit radio as the third single from the album on 15 July 2014.[2]

Music video[edit]

A lyric video was produced for the song. Filmed in Los Angeles, it was posted on the official Vevo and YouTube channel of the band on 2 July 2014, at midnight, after their live stream. The video, focuses on a bedroom, though in some scenes, the members of the band appear in a close up. During the whole video, the lyrics are projected in the room or on the members' faces.[3]

A music video directed by Isaac Rentz was also filmed, in which the band members and some girls and boys play around in several different scenes, diving into a pool fully clothed, playing golf on cars, etc. There are also several close-ups of the band-members singing along to the words of the song throughout the video. There are only three girls because they see the watcher and fans as the fourth one. The video was filmed from the fourth girl's perspective.[4]

The video is also the second most viewed by 5 Seconds of Summer. It reached 100 million views on 11 August 2016.
