ABSOLUTExclusive: Paper Melody Download

Posted by: Thomas Nassiff (10/18/11)
Today's exclusive is a download from California's The Paper Melody, a three-piece pop-rock group that sort of sounds like if Paramore and The Receiving End of Sirens got together to play early Panic! At the Disco songs. You can head to the replies to check out the music video for "The Nightmare Academy" first, then go ahead and download it for free. The band will be heading out on the #MEBtour soon.

I haven't listened yet but I saw on the front page "sort of sound like paramore" and I knew they had a female vocalist. So predictable.

Really, they sound more like old VersaEmerge, but that band is such a joke these days.

They could sound like Metallica but if they have a chick singer people on this site will say they sound like Paramore. Its annoying.

And hey Jack

Just listened and I agree with the early Panic sound but they sound nothing like Paramore.

I like it though.

Like you said, everyone always mentions Paramore when mentioning a female lead singer, which is just plain retarded. Jack was right when he said they sound more like (old) VE:

and listen pls. -.-


EDIT: i'm bored in class right now

p.s Qadriyahh, do you still use AIM? haha

everyone need to stop labeling every band with female vocalist as "the next paramore" or something like it.
anyway, these guys really need to get more exposure.

And I find it a little sexist too. How many male fronted bands sounds just alike but when you go in their their threads they aren't getting called the next someone.

Eh, disagree with that. In basically every review I do for MEB, I compare the vocalist (male or female) to SOMEONE. More often than not, the post-hardcore stuff gets the wannabe Anthony Green label.

The sample size is much smaller with female singers. All you can really compare someone to that's AP.net relevant is Sierra Kusterbeck, Hayley Williams, and Cassadee Pope.

So it's not sexist; it's an issue of the miniscule number of female fronted bands.
