PARAMORE is one of those bands that I just can’t bring myself to like, no matter how hard I try (see also EVERY TIME I DIE). On paper, they sound great: accessible radio rock bordering on pop-punk with an extremely cute bish singer who has semi-scene hair? What’s not to like?! Their boring music, for one. I am not sure why people call them pop-punk, because they are not actually very poppy at all. And no breakdowns?? NOT MUSIC. Enter some Canadian band called COURAGE MY LOVE, who are pretty much what I wanted PARAMORE to be.
All-girl gang vocals? Breakdown at 3:20, complete with pinch harmonic?? FUCK YES. And brb replaying 2:30-2:31 where you can see 2″ of her stomach
This song is better, I love the open-string melody in the pre-chorus. Reminds me of 90s emo like Texas Is The Reason only better because they’re downtuned a bit and hot bishes are involved. Video is p weak though… PROTIP: never let your film student friend talk you into making some gay video that’s ‘a tribute to the classics of French new wave’
brb thinking of ways to nonchalantly sniff the part of the redhead’s lower back that her sister’s junk was rubbing against
Oh, and did I mention they have TWO hot bishes in the band?? Apparently they’re twin sisters, and I keep going back and forth about which one I’m more into. On the one hand, I’m pretty into the singer’s 909-style lowlights (aka skunk hair). But as regular readers know nothing makes me heart go pitter-patter more than tomboyish 7.5/10s (srs), so the drummer is more up my alley (wood clean a homeless man’s taint with my tongue just for a chance to respectfully say hello to her from across the magazine aisle at Target). Sad 4 the grose ginger on bass though… he has the same physique as the two sisters and the same hair as Tegan & Sara :(
Now THIS is my shit! The song is so G-rated that “OMG” means “Oh My Gosh,” and the video is so sweet it makes my teeth hurt. Wood wring the necks of a dozen newborn kittens to be one of the guys in this video :( Brb heart is melting and wood wife/10 </3
COURAGE MY LOVE has the ability. They are good and lovely. I love them.
