Anyone who isn’t living under a rock right now, will know that Paramore are back in business with new track ‘Hard Times’ – and it sounds a bit different. There’s a good reason for that too, with Taylor York taking influence from Tame Impala.
“Taylor started writing music we were still doing shows for Self-Titled and the first stuff that he was sending me I was really intimidated by because I loved it so much,” Hayley Williams explains in a new Beats 1 interview. “It was very rhythmic and very different from anything that we had written before.”
“I was only listening to Tame Impala,” adds Taylor, “so I was just trying to rip off everything. It didn’t work but I had to try.”
Paramore’s new album ‘After Laughter’ is out on 12th May – have a listen to ‘Hard Times’ below.
