WATCH: Paramore's Hayley Williams Has Just Dropped The Video For Her Moody New Single 'SIMMER'
Just as we expected, the single, dubbed “SIMMER”, is a moody one. The track comes as the first offering from Williams since Paramore’s 2017 album, After Laughter, and it marks a definite departure from the band's pop rock origins. Instead of the thrashing guitars of "Misery Business", "SIMMER"'s eerie vocals alludes to something darker and certainly more mature.
Watch the video for "SIMMER" below:
Of course, reactions from all corners of the internet have been flooding in since the drop. Here’s a few of the best of 'em:

So what do you reckon, does "SIMMER" stack up to Williams' earlier work with Paramore?
Stay tuned, according to Genius, Hayley's Petals For Armor will be dropping in full on May 8th. In the meantime we'll be playing this banger on repeat.
