im sure they're nice people and all but i just want something different. paramore are a good artist but i feel like chicks need to define themselves... and you dont hear every guy singer sounding like hayley.
people will probs say im grouping them all, but i actually hear way too much hayley in all of those singers.. and it bugs me.
/just an opinion
Thanks for this, I definitely respect your opinion. I think we're slightly different from 'the norm' as we're UK-based, as is the band.
In terms of the Paramore comparison: for one thing, I am a huge Paramore fan so I take it as something of a compliment. I think because they are by far and away the stand-out band in the genre (let's call it female-fronted rock), it's so easy to make the comparison. If we sign a band that takes influences from The Killers, or Fall Out Boy - no-one makes any comment.
That's my take on it, anyway!
