The New York Times interviews Paramore + new photoshoot

With new album on the way there are always a lot of interviews we simply cannot stop enjoying. This time it’s The New York Times that brings us a worth reading text about Paramore and illustrates it which amazing photoshoot. Can it be better it any way? It can’t.

Don’t get the article wrong when it starts with Hayley Williams needing a break from „Paramore hair.” It’s just a nice introduction to a deep story you should read before buying „After Laughter,” or soon after. Oh, and you should know Paramore talks about new songs there too.

Read „Paramore Bounces Back With Old Faces and a New Sound” here and see a great photos taken by Eric Ryan Anderson. Hayley’s look was inspired by the amazing Pat McGrath obsessed with cobalt blue right now, said Brian O’Connor.

Paramore has dipped into cleaner, more rhythmic and synth-kissed textures of the ’70s and ’80s, owing the recent obsessions with Talking Heads, Tom Tom Club and Cyndi Lauper and Blondie.

„I couldn’t imagine putting something on an album that says ‚life’s great, everything’s cool, party with me,'” Ms. Williams said.

„We were down another member – same old story almost from Day 1. It made me question everything – am I doing something wrong? You read things that people say about you and eventually you just think, ‚Oh, I must be some kind of diva bitch.’ I know that’s not me, but it caused a lot of self-doubt.”
