Although R5 has been together for five years now, singer and bassist Riker Lynch says their Heart Made Up on You EP is a new direction for the band.

“The sound of this EP is kind of a fresh take on R5 and a fresh take on pop rock in a sense because it brings new elements to what we started with our original stuff,” he tells On Air with Ryan Seacrest, “but it’s expanding a bit and trying new things.”
