Hayley Williams goes solo

2020-01-23 by Aeri | 66 Comments
Three years following Paramore’s After Laughter, lead vocalist Hayley Williams has kicked off a solo project.

Not an indication of the group’s disbandment, the official Paramore Facebook issued the following statement: ”We are beyond proud of Hayley for stepping out on her own and making her own art. Please support our bad ass singer as she takes on the world on her own for a little bit! petalsforarmor.com

Hear ‘Simmer’ now:

It's...okay? It's really hard for me to get used to Hayley's voice being so...subtle. But it kinda works here. Decent/5

Hayley is probably the one who wrote this on the band's Facebook.

Curious on the musical direction of her going solo. Would have thought that the 80s sound of After Laughter would have been the sound that fit her best being a solo artist, but this is definitely different in a good way imo

“Would have thought that the 80s sound of After Laughter would have been the sound that fit her best being a solo artist”

Nah she’d straight up be Taylor Swift 1989-ing it if that were the case, very grateful she avoided it tbh

"I don’t mind this. It’s basically “Warpaint does After Laughter”"

Something makes me think this is still kind of different from that, but if this is accurate, I'm madly stoked to check this out.

Interested in seeing how an entire album like this would play out. I wasn't entirely impressed with the After Laughter singles, but that became one of my favorite Paramore albums. Could see a similar thing happening here, seems like she's not content to churn out the same music and that's a good thing.

Hm. I like it, I just feel like she's trying pretty desperately to seem all dark and moody now. I know that After Laughter had some pretty downer lyrics, but this feels a bit unnatural.

This and the new track kinda sounds like A Fine Frenzy meets Radiohead. But I've found each track a little boring, and I'd rather listen to either of the above.
