The hard times have come and gone, and Paramore are ready to get down with their latest synth-laden single, Rose-Colored Boy. The latest single off their 5th studio album, After Laughter, Rose-Colored Boy comes complete with a totally 70’s vibes in the music video, which sees frontwoman Hayley Williams taking on the appearance of a newscaster from that time period, complete with big hair, and her bandmates in Mad Men-esque suits.
The indie vibes of After Laughter are definitely still in play here, and the thumping beat may belie the darker overtones of the music video, but makes for some riveting watching. Paramore are no strangers to such themes (‘Ignorance’ comes to mind), and it’s no surprise they’d take the upbeat feel of this song and match it with themes of self-worth.
If you’re not a fan of Paramore’s indie-laced sound, this album might not do anything for you, but if you’re looking for something fresh, catchy, and more than a little dance-worthy, then this cut is definitely one you want on rotation!
