Paramore - Careful

April 20, 2012 Critic Jonni 0 Comments

Paramore, as you may be aware of, is one of my favourite bands. I went to see them live back in 2008 with Tink09 and Hollagram Star. The band consisted, back then, of: Hayley Williams, Josh Farro, Zac Farro, Taylor York and Jeremy Davis. Josh and Zac have recently left. This song didn't do that well in the charts, so it'll be interesting what will be happening in the future for these guys.

"Careful" was written by Hayley Williams and Josh Farro. Again, as most bands do, they wrote their own song, and are easily capable of connecting to the song and flooding it with emotion. It charted highest in Portugal, but still with a low chart rating. As for the UK it got to number 108, but at least it charted.

The music video is a compilation of tour performances, with Hayley having many different hair colours. This is the third tour compilation music video they have done, the first two being "All We Know" and "Hallelujah". So they have created a compilation video for each of their 3 albums, which is clever. But will they do it again in the future? I hope not.

The footage was taken from many different tours, including the Brisbane Soundwave Tour, their 2010 Spring Tour, 2009 Fall Tour and a one-off performance at Festival Hall in Australia amongst other performances. There are also many backstage clips edited in intricately, and I don't think anyone could have done a better job.

There really isn't much else to say, I like how you can feel the vibes that the audience is getting from this band. You certainly get a perfect performance. The song is great also, and when I first heard it on the album, I knew it'd be a single. Cannot wait to see what new sound they make with the absence of the Farro brothers.
