Single Review – Paramore – Told You So

Ahead of the release of their sixth studio album ‘After Laughter’ on May 12 Paramore release new single ‘Told You So’. Continuing the surfer guitar and pop-fuelled energy of first single ‘Hard Times’ the track’s themes are worn on its eighties track-suited sleeve. ‘Told You So’ centres on shifting friendships, lead singer Hayley Williams; ‘felt like there were people kinda waiting to tell me that they knew what the outcome was gonna be, and I was the only one who didn’t see it.’ But the song isn’t as bitterly resentful of past friendships as perhaps it could have been, due to the band’s personal experience. This is a track about living through – okay maybe pun intended – hard times to realise that the place you end up because of it isn’t really all that bad.
