Remember 10 or 11ish years ago? When we are jamming out to “Burnin’ Up,” and “Fly with Me” by the Jonas Brothers. From “SOS” to “Year 3,000”, the Jonas Brothers have created so many songs that the Gen Z generation knows and loves. Some fans still know the songs by heart, while others smile when they remember the good old days.
In 2012, the Jonas Brothers announced they were splitting up. From that moment on, the Jonas Brothers did not release any more music together. Each brother went on to do their own separate projects. Nick had a successful solo career, Joe’s band DNCE did exceptionally well, and Kevin was able to start a family. During the hiatus, each brother worked hard to find what they were passionate about. They were able to grow individually, so they could create things that represented who they were.
After a six-year hiatus, the brothers announced they are getting back together. Along with the announcement, the brothers released their song, “Sucker.” This song sounded completely different from the music they released 10 years ago. Since the brothers spent time working on themselves, the music they made together was so much stronger. Each brother had found the sounds that they love separately and were able to put it together to create something brand new.
There are different opinions on which era of the Jonas Brothers is better, and I believe it is the here and now. I still remember the words to every song from 10 years ago, but the music they are releasing now is so more well-crafted. With each release, you can hear how each brother worked hard to bring their own style or flair to piece. In their new song, “Whos In Your Head,” you can hear the DNCE sound mixed together with Nick’s solo career sound.
The brothers worked hard while they were on their own and they are bringing those skill to the band to make something astounding. 10 years ago, we received the songs of our childhood. But now, the band we know, and love is creating the songs of our adulthood. Their old music is something fans of the Jonas Brothers can cherish forever, but their new sound is unique to them. When you hear their music, you hear the sounds of three brothers having the time of their lives.
