PARAMORE IS BACK AFTER FOUR YEARS!
Paramore has always been one of my favorite bands, but I’ve never gotten into them as much as other people I know have. But for the first time in four years, they’ve released a single AND a music video for said single at the same time.
Their older music is more alternative, especially their first three albums. Riot! is an iconic Paramore album, especially since it was their second album, and many bands go through a sophomore slump.
Hard Times, their newest single, however, still has a bit of edgy to it, but it’s, dare I say, funky? The song definitely has an 80’s theme to it, and the music video matches the song almost perfectly.
I was a bit surprised to hear it at first, but nonetheless, I love it. It’s just not something that I was used to. Their fourth album was definitely a little bit more pop than their previous albums, but the one thing that I like about Paramore is that since they are signed to Fueled by Ramen, they get all of the decision making in what their music is going to sound like. They’re not forcing themselves to sound more pop because that’s what is popular, but they are doing what they enjoy.
Overall, I would recommend the song, it’s so catchy, the lyrics are great, the music video is great. 100% listen to it if you like any type of 80’s pop.
