The first song, “Rock Me,” is a Dr. Luke and Cirkut-produced midtempo pop banger with a storming beat that evokes Queen‘s “We Will Rock You” — a likely homage — and a little shoutout to “heavy metal” in the chorus. (Are we the only ones unconvinced by 1D’s heavy metal cred?) The second song, “They Don’t Know About Us,” is slightly slower in pace, but a lovely pop tune. Hear them both after the jump.
