PARAMORE – ” C’est Comme Ça “

Posted: January 16, 2023 in MUSIC


C’est Comme Ça,” is Paramore’s third electrifying single off their highly anticipated new album “This is Why” out February 10th on Atlantic Records. Translating literally from French as “it’s like that,” the single follows the idea of “that’s just how it is.” The song has a narrative form, flipping between singing and smooth talking to show the difference between a life of survival and one of stability. The lyrics, “I hate to admit getting better is boring / But the high cost of chaos, who can afford it?” attests to Hayley Williams and fellow bandmates coming from a place of security, and not of catastrophe. It’s hard to accept a life that doesn’t warrant a constant fight-or-flight reaction when that’s all you’ve known for so long.

The single packs a punch with a staccato-like rhythm to grab one’s attention with zippery tones from the initial guitar riffs. The Nashville trio, consisting of lead vocalist Hayley Williams, guitarist Taylor York and drummer Zac Farro, have been around since 2004, “This Is Why” really resonates with me, both musically and lyrically, and is now my current favourite song. Their first new single in four years, the defiantly honest song was the lead single from their forthcoming sixth album, also to be titled “This Is Why”.

Williams said “‘This Is Why” was the very last song we wrote for the album. To be honest, I was so tired of writing lyrics but Taylor convinced Zac and I both that we should work on this last idea. What came out of it was the title track for the whole album. It summarizes the plethora of ridiculous emotions, the roller-coaster of being alive in 2022, having survived even just the last three or four years. You’d think after a global pandemic of fucking biblical proportions and the impending doom of a dying planet, that humans would have found it deep within themselves to be kinder or more empathetic or something.”
