Paramore: Influences

Paramore's rainbow-hued pop comes from an impressive lineage of spunky, exuberant rockers. On a sonic level, Paramore's energised spin on emo takes influence from the raucous, wiry punk of The Distillers and New Found Glory, as well as Blondie's retro-kissed New Wave. Meanwhile, the quirky charisma of No Doubt's Gwen Stefani informs frontwoman Hayley Williams' fiery feminist stance and commanding singing style.
