As I am hopefully back to life, The Wombats came back with their first official single from their 5th studio album Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life. Lemon to a knife fight is truly and so The Wombats, creative lyrics meet catchy beat, circling in ones mind for hours.
The Wombats likes to show their faces in their music videos, this time around they appear briefly, opening and closing a very bizarre video for Lemon to Knife Fight. It starts with a kidnapper and his victim, driving to the woods to meet the victims fate. As per usual, there’s a dark twist, giving the victim a fair advantage against the kidnapper. It’s not a superhero kind of situation, but it’s worth watching.
Starting strong, we can only wait and see, if Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life will be as good or even better as the single and ones that came before.
After 3 years of waiting and constant teasing Paramore released the single Hard Times, promoting the upcoming album After Laughter.
Paramore opened a new chapter of their lives, followed by big changes, professionally and privately. But their music was always top-notch. After Ain’t it fun became the band’s highest charting song in the US and a winner for Best Rock Song at the 57th Annual Grammy Awards, Paramore made a good call releasing a song in the same convention.
Hayley Williams ditched her signature look for blond hair, bringing a glimpse of old school to the new video. We can also see Zac Farro, as the official 3rd member of the band (once again).
The song is fun, catchy, with lyrics we all can relate to, we all had a bad day, fell off the rails and needed some help with convincing ourselves it’s all gonna be fine. It’s well paired with colorful video, neons, drawings and all kinds of effects.
After Laughter will be released on May 12th.
Today’s great premiere of Panic! At the Disco’s new single Hallelujah got me caught up on listening and watching it for hours. Try it once and you gonna do the same, promise.
First lets talk about the lyrics. Brendon is married, so he knows what he’s talking about. Leaving is easy when you screw things up, but love is not some fairy tale with a dreamy ending.
I was drunk and it didn’t mean a thing
Stop thinking about
The bullets from my mouth
I love the things you hate about yourself
And the video? A tetris alike castle full of labyrinths and moving floors. It perfectly suits the lyrics, as it shows the truth, that it’s always hard to try again and overcome your fears. Especially when it comes to relationships.
No one wants you when you have no heart and
I’m sitting pretty in my brand new scars and
You’ll never know if you don’t ever try again
So let’s try
