August 6, 2017 [song]: Hard Times – Paramore (new-wave, pop-rock)

Behind the cheerful and upbeat 80s new-wave melody lies a dark and depressing undertone beautifully crafted by Nashville rockers, Paramore.

Second Paramore song in a row, yay!

Paramore are a rock band formed in the US – they have mastered and presented 5 studio albums since their formation in 2004.

This song was the first single off their new album, After Laughter, released mid-May of this year. This continues their significant change in sound from their self titled album released in 2013; from emo, pop-punk, and alt rock to new-wave, 80s revival, and synth-pop.

Despite their change in sound, the lyrics that are crafted by Paramore frontwoman, Hayley Williams, has not changed a bit. “All that I want, is to wake up fine, tell me that I’m alright, that I ain’t gonna die…” certainly reminds me of the good ol’ emo days in the early 00s…
