The Wanted seem to have put their feud withOne Direction behind them, branding Harry Styles and Co " a phenomenon."
Speaking to MTV News UK onboard The EDF Energy London Eye yesterday (September 11), Max George and Tom Parker insisted that despite the constant comparisons, they're happy to admit that 1D are in a league of their own.
When we asked the lads if they're fed up with the comparisons between their band and One Direction, Max replied: "It's not fed up. To me they're so different, they're this brand, this phenomenal brand.
"We're at a level we're very proud of and a level that we never thought in a million years we'd get to.”
George added: "I don't think you can compare One Direction to anyone if I'm brutally honest.
"They're a phenomenon and it only happens once in our lifetime and it's happened. Fair play to them.”
The singer went on to claim: “All we concentrate on is that we get better as musicians – maybe at some point we'll see the transition of where we go from a 'boy band' as such into a 'band' because we all play instruments but we've just never really expressed it.
“I think at some point we could be a hybrid between the two maybe. I don't know what our record label would think about that!”
The Wanted's new single Show Me Love is out on October 20.
