Petals for Armor/Last of Paramore?

Message Bookmarked
Bookmark Removed

so there's this instagram called Petals For Armor whose first follower is the official Paramore instagram. Some believe the name is an imperfect anagram for Last of Paramore (Last of paremorr). It's a lot of grainy nature footage and the url in the bio links to a video of a monarch butterfly. Something seems to be up.

remaining hopeful it’s just hayley and taylor’s balearic techno side project

I would accept that! A while back, Hayley did a post on instagram and it was kinda like "here are just some pictures of things around my house that make me happy." One pic was houseplants, then some mirrors, then a couple of synths, then a picture of her dog..." And ever since then, I've been secretly praying for Hayley to drop a Jane Weaver-style psych pop record or something.

So excited!

Did you notice that she referred to this as an "offering" which is also the title of My Chemical Romance's video from this weekend?

my first offering:

“SIMMER”, drops 1.22.20

petals for armor out may 8, produced by taylor york

“I’m so ready and so incredibly humbled to get to share this project,” says Williams. “Making it was a scary, empowering experience. Some of my proudest moments as a lyricist happened while writing ‘PETALS FOR ARMOR.’ And I was able to get my hands a little dirtier than usual when it came to instrumentation. I’m in a band with my favorite musicians so I never really feel the need to step into a role as a player when it comes to Paramore records. This project, however, benefited from a little bit of musical naïveté and rawness and so I experimented quite a bit more. I made this with some of the closest people to me. Their respective talents really shine bright throughout the record. I like to think we all make each other better and the result is something that sounds and FEELS exactly as I’d hoped it would. Now that it’s time to put it all out there, I can finally exhale. I’m excited to let people in to experience a different side of myself that I’ve only very recently become familiar with.”

Hayley playing instruments is something I've been hoping for for a while.

xp: I had been thinking Meredith Monk, but Tour de France is probably closer.

Also the one-note humming sample reminds me of the "ha ha ha ha" from O Superman. See also the harmonized vocals on "con-trol" and "eyes closed" in the chorus, although Hayley isn't nearly as vocodored.

OK, have not been following the singles releases since about mid-March when the world started falling the fuck apart. But apparently Hayley has been getting shit from some people online about the unorthodox release schedule. In response, she tweeted this video:

And over the past couple days, some people on /r/paramore are just about shitting their beds over her calling out "men" about this. This thread in particular is just a nightmare, but there are a few others:

I dunno man. Maybe it'll just be a passing thing and blow over in a day or two, but it's weirding me out and giving me GamerGate vibes. I've been active on that sub since the last album came out and it feels like these butthurt dudes are just coming out of the woodwork.

maura, Thursday, 7 May 2020 04:10 (six months ago) link

I like this album a lot, it feels like a natural evolution for her in a lot of ways. It's not as loaded with killer tunes as the last two Paramore albums, but there are plenty of good ones and I like hearing her explore different settings. You can spot the influences all day long but none of it feels too obvious or forced. Very much a "mature" album, in all kinds of ways.

Simmer is probably my favorite song of the year. I don't know that anything else on the album reaches that height but Roses/Lotus/etc is close. don't like this quite as much as After laughter which I never tire of, but it's very good.

is there a plan to release a 'III' EP or is it just I + II and now the full album's out?

the latter

also this may be way too late to bother but if you put the Phoebe/HW instagram video in a new browser and minimize it down to like 20% of yr screen, you can surf in another window in the other 80% of yr screen. at least it's working for me in Chrome. *high five*
