@Lasssie - They did, then they kinda walked back on that statement and said the album was inspired by Bloc Party.

I honestly like the song, definitely a lot more than anything off AL, but I also think it's pretty dumb that the album doesn't come out till next year.

i imagine artists of paramore's clout do it in order to sell more tickets for the tour but even a lot of smaller artists have been doing it lately yeah

always seems to me that there's more hype around a release when it drops out of nowhere / a week after the first single

Song is different, but it rules. Definitely a weird comeback single but makes me interested in what the album is gonna be. Long rollouts suck. I much prefer the month or less style.

banger but chorus caught me off guard the first time

really good 2007 post-punk revival energy here in a way that doesnt feel derivative of that but reflective of its best qualities like its catchiness and off-kilter energy

Five months is just a long time for a band that hasn't dropped anything in over five years. Just kinda feels unnecessarily long to me

“those who dont like this just want to be edgy/contrarian“
That’s funny cause that’s typically you lol

I knew this was how it was gonna sound but I still can’t help but be disappointed. It’s catchy too but just not a style I typically ever wanna listen to. Good for them doing what they want but I have no desire to revisit stuff like this

Not what I expected with the considerable hype surrounding their supposed return to pop-punk. Still a very good song though; After Laughter was one of their best albums and this continues with that style.

99% of post-punk is trash including Talking Heads so this is the best post-punk song by default (but honestly it just sounds like more After Laughter to me, I'm just calling it post-punk cause everyone else is calling it that)

@nash - I agree, which is why I wasn't super thrilled when they brought him back into the band. Seems like a good dude but was on a completely different wavelength from the rest of the group at the time.

While everyone and their mother is trying their hand at pop punk revivalism, Paramore was brave enough to double down on the path they were going before...

So much for the return to their old sound they promised. Tbh I was expecting a mixture of S/T and After Laughter, which I guess would have been tonally inconsistent, so kudos to them for picking one and sticking to it?

That said, Farro's drumming is really the only interesting thing going on here. Williams' voice is restraining so much relative to what its capable of. I guess this format is not calling for any bombast, but nonetheless. The same problems I had w/ AL and Williams' solo stuff are present here; it just has an offputting, adversarial and lowkey pretentious vibe to it. In short, it sounds really fucking white. That's the best way to put it. To steal from a forgotten Sputniker, "a stench of lilac"

don't think five months is that egregious a rollout [2]

song is alright, much less of a return-to-rock than I expected but the hooks and energy are vaguely there. no strong opinions tbh thanx for the heads up on that front tho hayley

@Shamus - Lol you had me up until the "sounds really white" part.

@Slex - I kinda agree about Hayley being boring, I'm not huge on the really breathy way she sings the verses. It's the same way she sings a lot of her solo stuff too.

too long of a rollout, kinda glad its not a half hearted "return to pop punk", song is pretty good but this:

"Williams' voice is restraining so much relative to what its capable of. I guess this format is not calling for any bombast, but nonetheless. The same problems I had w/ AL and Williams' solo stuff are present here; it just has an offputting, adversarial and lowkey pretentious vibe to it."

is pretty accurate.

Racism? lol i'm as white as Paramore is. I mean to say their music sounds white as in comically gimmicky and put on. This song actually inspired me to revisit After Laughter for the first time in ages and I think I treated AL too harshly, bc at least Hayley's voice is not smothered and her delivery is not laughably bad

thanks for the warm reception, Feather
