Paramore Hold On To Their Smarts

Jul 6th, 2009 // 1 Comment

The first single from Paramore’s forthcoming Brand New Eyes is “Ignorance,” a tight little rock song that mixes the dark, goth-leaning aspects of “Decode” with the wailing that characterized the band’s breakthrough song “Misery Business.” The hyperactive breakup track is going to be available for download from legit sources tomorrow, so for now, instructions on how to hear it–since every YouTube embed of the song gets dinged with a “copyright restrictions in your country” message for US listeners–after the jump.

So basically in order to listen to the track, you have to go over to this Francophone site and click the button on the right-hand side of the page next to the text “music mix” until “Ignorance” comes up. (This may take as many as 70 clicks, no lie. It took me a few tries, too!)

  1. Hayley Williams still writes terrible lyrics, but this is an accepted caveat in lieu of how I have listened to Paramore’s Riot more than any other album this decade. It’s not great or anything–it’s quite flawed. It’s just irresistible. It also kind of left me on my bedroom floor feeling some thrashed and raw nerves I thought I had abandoned in high school. It was good, it was healing, etc.

    This, on second listen, seems pretty great, actually. Will probably in the next few months listen to Brand New Eyes and get similarly wracked by pain and release. Which is probably the sign of a great band.
