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

see you then🌺 https://t.co/n8ApORvDIX

Crazy coincidence or is there something tying these together?

So who are the "friends" she referred to in that initial announcement

Probably Jack Antonoff eh

possibly the most confusingly designated solo project ever but i'm very excited for what's essentially another paramore album

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.”

american bradass (BradNelson), Wednesday, 22 January 2020 19:48 (two months ago) link

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

☮️ (peace, man), Wednesday, 22 January 2020 19:49 (two months ago) link

I still don't know the difference between this and a new Paramore album but whatever I'm excited who cares

man this was so satisfying. nothing i expected yet exactly what i wanted

I happily listened to it like 10 times in a row yesterday. m bison, what are your lame comparisons? I hear a little Kate Bush and Alanis Morissette in the vocals in various parts.

Yup, this is great. I hear those Kate Bush echoes too (which seem to be everywhere the last few years), but the pulsing beat is a new and welcome thing.

i like this better than any st vincent i've ever heard

oh and the breathy part reminds me of tour de france by kraftwerk

Roz, Saturday, 25 January 2020 13:25 (two months ago) link

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.

(the "holy shit" because I'm surprised that she released another one this soon)

i wasn't as big on "simmer" as the rest of you but this one is really nice

ufo, Thursday, 30 January 2020 20:17 (two months ago) link

Both fantastic. This one is reminiscent of Radiohead, but also, like, a creepy understated Tori Amos b-side (“Honey”, maybe?).

Tim F, Thursday, 30 January 2020 20:47 (two months ago) link

Not a cover of the Living Colour song to my immense disappointment.

These videos and songs have all been incredible so far.

Josh in Chicago, Thursday, 6 February 2020 16:59 (two months ago) link

ok now it's filtered to spotify

"creepin'" is so awesome

american bradass (BradNelson), Thursday, 6 February 2020 17:09 (two months ago) link

and "sudden desire" is the best one yet

american bradass (BradNelson), Thursday, 6 February 2020 17:24 (two months ago) link

cinnamon is kinda roisiny

Thybulle on the Dash (Spottie), Thursday, 6 February 2020 22:46 (two months ago) link

"cinnnamon" is also kinda tune-yardsy

"creepin" rules though

ufo, Thursday, 6 February 2020 23:13 (two months ago) link

This is the most ILM record ever (even after just 5 songs).

Jeff W, Friday, 7 February 2020 13:50 (two months ago) link

The next song released will be about how much she loves balloons.

"Cinnamon" is not bad.

Not feeling "Cinnamon." Agree w/the Tune-Yards comment. "Creepin'" is better but the total batch here hasn't been as exciting to me as I expected given how big of a Paramore fan I've been since Riot!

Indexed, Friday, 7 February 2020 19:19 (two months ago) link

Huh, I'm almost the opposite, in that I love all of this new stuff. But then, I've only really gotten into the last couple of Paramore records. Regardless, I love how these new songs *sound*. Who produced, is that all Taylor York?

(I don't mean 'just about', that's all pretty blatant; wonder who directed it?)

I'm on board for everything but Sudden Desire. "simmer" likely to be a top ten end of year contender.
