Paramore - 'Still Into You'

Paramore - 'Still Into You'

When people say Paramore have ‘gone pop’ what they mean is the trio have become No Doubt. The band’s all about frontwoman Hayley Williams now, who’s going big on the becoming Gwen Stefani thing with her half-pink, half-red hair and...

Paramore - 'Paramore'

“Some of us have to grow up sometimes/If I have to I’m going to leave you behind”, sings Hayley Williams on ‘Grow Up’. The line is presumably aimed at Josh and Zac Farro, her former bandmates who quit the group in less than friendly...

Album review: Paramore - 'Brand New Eyes'

You can see it in the pointed use of lower case lettering in the album title on the artwork, in the cruelly dismembered and mounted butterfly on the cover and in the tormented song titles – ‘Turn It Off’, ‘Ignorance’, ‘Playing God’....

Paramore: RIOT!

The assuredness of Paramore’s debut ‘All We Know Is Falling’ placed them as musical saviours in waiting. An electric shock of songs that pinged with headbanging enthusiasm as much as it made you cry, it summed up everything emo was in 2005....

Finally, a female-led antidote to all of those testosterone-rammed chaps of emo and, lucky for us and even luckier for you, they’re chuffin’ amazing. Like early No Doubt (stripped of all the ska bollocks), Kelly Clarkson’s wildest dreams and...
