HalfNoise - All That Love Is

While one of Zac Farro's bands may be massive, the other is every bit as brilliant.

Paramore dropped one of the - if not the - best albums of 2017, and yet still, despite all the acclaim, the sheer musical muscle contained within the individual members remains under-appreciated

With the focus on figurehead Hayley Williams, the raw talent of guitarist Taylor Yorke often goes unnoticed, even after the band's radical (in both senses of the word) reinvention for 'After Laughter'. Drummer Zac Farro's work in 'other band' HalfNoise may be about to get the dues it so deserves though, with a brand new EP set to arrive next month packed with solid gold bangers.

We've already had the glorious title track, 'Flowerss'. Now it's followed up by the dance-tastic 'All That Love Is'. Echoing parts of early 00s DFA (think a blissed out the Rapture) with a twist, it's a track that pulls the happy music / deep lyrics twist Farro's other band finds so effective. This is anything but a mere Paramore offshoot though. Active during Zac's time away from the band, HalfNoise is a fully formed project, becoming less a solo endeavour and more a proper band by the moment.

In those terms, 'All That Love Is' is the point where all lazy 'side-project' assertions stop. While one of Zac Farro's bands may be massive, the other is every bit as brilliant. Shine that spotlight bright, it's time to recognise.
