Paramore have officially gone pop on their comeback track, “Hard Times.”
The band have started tip-toeing away from their rock roots on their self-titled last album, with tracks like “Still Into You,” but they still remained rock at their core.
“Hard Times,” quite frankly, doesn’t.
It’s indie-pop, lying very far to the pop side, unashamedly.
But, away from the fact they’ve sold out, the track is actually pretty catchy.
There’s not much to talk about from a production value, it’s a typical 80s-esque indie-pop.
But Hayley Williams voice sounds perfect over this less rock beat, it just flows nicely against the indie tones.
Whether or not die-hard Paramore fans will stick with the band or not is yet to be seen. But from a pop perspective, welcome to our pop shores!
