The good news for Paramore fans is they have new music today in the form of single Hard Times, and a new LP coming 12th May. That’s called After Laughter, and has twelve tracks.
But every silver lining has a black cloud, and that’s when you listen to Hard Times. Now, we’re not saying it’s bad, it’s just… Paramore have shed any pretensions and gone full on eighties pop music, including tropical tinges, because god knows we don’t have enough tropical. Oh wait, we do.
So, if you hated them before, you might like this new, chart destined version, cos they sound like a few other zeitgeisty acts. Or you might be sick.
