Paramore are having a great week. Their just released eponymous album is on pace to enter the US Album charts at #1, taking the spot away from Justin Timberlake.
As evident from their great singles, “Now” and the incredibly catching “Still Into You”, Paramore are really bringing it on this album. It’s the best, in my opinion, they’ve ever been. I’m really digging the direction of their song – it’s definitely poppier and radio-friendly, but there’s still an edge. And lead singer, Hayley Williams sounds great.
Paramore recently stopped by BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge and performed an incredible three-song set. The flawless vocals by Hayley on their obligatory cover song, one of my favorites, “Matilda” by Alt-J, was incredible. She sounds amazing. In the past, she’s been hit and miss for me, but she’s been ace lately.
I’m well impressed!
They also preformed the presumptive next single, “Hate To See Your Heart Break”. as well as a fantastic acoustic version of the current single, “Still Into You”.
A brilliant stop at the Live Lounge. Well done Paramore, and much deserved congrats on their success.
