Former X Factor boyband, Union J have promised that they’re going to have a huge 2014 ahead.

Over the past year, the lads have admitted that they’ve gained some really good experience and now they want to release music that “cuts over from very good to amazing”.

Speaking to the Daily Star newspaper, the foursome said: “With the experience we’ve gained, we’re now in a position of knowing what we want to do.

“We want to get some new producers to work with, get a new sound and find that lane we want to go down”.

They went on to add that their debut album was very diverse and their plan in 2014 is to find their own lane and find the music that they want to make and focus on that. They also have plans to have a massive hit in the new year.

The lads continued: “Every song on our album is good but we want that massive hit that cuts over from very good to amazing, just like The Wanted did with Glad you Came.

“It’s really exciting as we’re not going to be complacent. We work well under pressure.

“With merchandise on our tour doing ridiculously well, we want our music to be as good as that. Our album was so diverse, almost too diverse, so we want to look at the songs the public like”.

However, being a boyband in the UK comes with its very own pressures as the lads admitted to the newspaper that everyone thought they were going to be as big as One Direction. But, Josh Cuthbert, JJ Hamblett, Jaymi Hensley and George Shelley all know how tough the music industry is.

“Everyone thought we were going to be the second One Direction in a minute because we were another boyband from the show. But, they didn’t get as famous as they are until the first year and a half through their career.

“It’s a hard industry, yet last year we were able to travel up and down the country on tour and had the best time,” they added.

Do you have high expectations for Union J in the new year?
