Paramore is my favorite band since I was in the Junior High School. That’s the reason why I’d like to write about them. I won’t write about their members, songs, awards, albums, etc because you can find it easily in google. Thus, I’ll write about my point of view of their music, genre, members, etc.
I like Paramore because they have an alternative rock genre which different with others. Why is it different? The first reason is the woman vocal. Hayley has a unique technique vocal which we can know by the time when we hear it. She can reach the high vocal without any falsetto and it’s really amazing for a woman who sings rock song. Another reason is their music which in my point of view is really eargasm. The beat of the drum, the string of the guitar, and heart-beating bass are really a perfect combination. They write their own songs and they arrange their own music. The third is because their heart-catching songs. It’s not only about love but also about friendship and dreams. The last but not least is their love to Parafamily. They really appreciate the fans and show their love through the songs. They always reply fan’s messages whether in social media or through fan meeting.
As the time goes by, Paramore’s music change from alternative rock which is full of high tones and high sound of music to a little bit calmer. Frankly, I’m a little bit disappointed with it. It doesn’t mean that I don’t like it, but it’s really unfortunate if they change their music. The high tones of the vocal and music are the main characteristic of Paramore, so it makes their music lose a really good character of their band. I still like the music though. However, I miss their rock music which can make my head banging over and over again and sing as loud as I could. Yeah, I really miss it.
The reason why they change their music (off course it’s from my own opinion) is because they lost two members who play guitar and drum. Since that time, I saw that their music change into a calm one. Maybe it’s because they don’t have a drummer in their band, so they can’t get their old genre. They use another person to take the drum but not as the permanent member. It’s only to fill the “empty space” and to complete the arrangement of the music. I don’t know whether it is true or not as it’s just my analysis.
When I heard about the leaving of the two members, I was wondering what the problem is. I searched and searched to find the reason and finally I can pick up the line. From what I saw and read, the reason why they decided to leave the band is because the dominant role of Hayley Williams. She appears more in the music video and gets more spotlights on every stage. Moreover, people who don’t know Paramore really well only recognize Hayley. It’s really regrettable that they left the band while they can talk and complain or suggest something about it.
Even though they have lost two members, the dominant role still exists. Hayley still becomes the dominant member on every stage or music videos. She comes more often in music video than the rest two members. It’s also the reason of my disappointed because Taylor and Jeremy have their right to appear more in music video because they are also the members of Paramore. It doesn’t mean that I don’t like Hayley, I just want the role of each members more fair. Just like what I have said before that I like the unique vocal of her. Besides, she is also pretty in her red hair and tattoos which lay on her body.
However, I still enjoy their songs. I have become their fans for almost six years and maybe that’s the reason why I can’t live the band so easily. Their songs can make my day brighten and also throw up my emotions. In addition, they still have a good quality in producing music. Therefore, I will support them until I don’t have any passion into music (which is impossible).
