Being a natural introvert, I always made an effort to push myself to try new things and break out of my comfort zone. Read my blog to discover my experience going to new events, trying new foods, going to meetups, vacations and meeting new people on a weekly basis. Each week I will rate the experience and talk about the pros and cons of that particular experience.
After four long years, Paramore is back. The new album After Laughter is a shift from their adored pop-punk sound, but if there’s one thing Paramore excels at, it’s staying on top.
While other early-2000 pop-punk bands have fallen by the wayside, Paramore thrives through tactful reinvention. In their 2013 self-titled album, we began to see a shift in direction toward a more pop sound in hit songs like “Ain’t It Fun” and “Still Into You.”
Now, that change has turned into a revolution in After Laughter which is a fusion of sonic 80s instrumentals (i.e., Talking Heads) with contemporary nuances.
