Music Video Review
"Hard Times" by Paramore
Written by: Karalynne
Who's ready for new music from female-fronted rockers, Paramore? Well fear not because we have just what you need! Early this morning the band debuted the music video for Hard Times, off their just announced album "After Laughter"! The band's 5th LP is set for release May 12, and features dynamic front woman Hayley Williams with a new lineup from previous releases. The lineup change isn't the only change we see so far though, and we are loving the shake up!
Hard Times exudes the colorful happiness and positivity that comes with Spring, all with that edginess we've come to love from Paramore! In what is clearly an intentional shift, the Warped Tour icon has shed both the daring colorful hair and the fast paced power chords that fans have come to associate with the band. Instead, fans are met with an upbeat, synth heavy, rhythmic hit with powerful 80s vibes, and allusions to darker struggles.
With a hit to make the likes of Cyndi Lauper and Madonna proud, Paramore yet again bends genre boundaries and pushes their limits to bring us what is sure to be a summer anthem. Make sure you take a moment and check out Hard Times from Paramore's upcoming album, "After Laughter", and let us know what you think!
