New Music: Paramore – ‘Monster’

Paramore’s contribution to the Transformers: Dark of the Moon soundtrack debuted on YouTube today, its first release since brothers Josh and Zac Farro left the band. The result is a track that’s a touch less virtuosic and memorable than, say, Twilight Saga jam “Decode,” but, as always, Hayley Williams turns in a towering vocal performance over the band’s churning guitars. Time will tell how much the brothers’ absence effects the next record, but “Monster” isn’t a bad start to Paramore’s next chapter.
