2013 must be the year for high school/college bands to make their return; because Paramore is now the next band to come out with a new album this year. The first single off their self-titled album is called “Now” and if you was expecting the kiddie pop from their last two albums . . .  think again.

“Now” is strictly a punk rock song; there are no lovely dubby lyrics nor is Hayley (lead singer) singing sweetly and soft. There is a force not just in the beat but in her voice. You can tell that the band has grown and in this song, they are taking the time to appreciate rock music.

Lost the battle, win the war
I’m bringing my sinking ship back to the shore
We’re starting over, or head back in
There’s a time and a place to die but this ain’t it

The lyrics to the song sound as if the band or could be just Hayley had a struggle and needed to get back to where it all began. The video, which shows a battle taking place, only makes the lyrics and the rock theme more significant.  The song also feels that Paramore has more freedom in their music. They started out as a punk rock band but didn’t get much attention until they were able to cross over to pop. It is important that fans, old and new, see what Paramore is doing; they are evolving while preserving their true passion for rock.

The full video can be viewed here.

What do you think about Paramore’s new sense of musical freedom? Are you looking forward to their new album?
