Hayley Williams - Simmer
Published: 8:29 pm, January 22, 2020Words: Stephen Ackroyd.

If there's one thing Hayley Williams does especially well, it's turn those difficult moments into something more. On Paramore's most recent album, 'After Laughter', struggles with forgiveness, identity and outward facing false impressions were turned into care-free, sunny day bops. A juxtaposition of light and shade, it was an invitation to dance while the world burned.

On her big solo introduction, 'Simmer', she's at it again - only more so.

Strange and yet somehow brilliantly familiar, there's a certain ancient magic at work. This is a million miles away from those day-glo pop punk days of yore. Organic and textured, it's at times restrained, others truly vicious. An elemental force of weirdo pop, it's a cornered animal ready to fight.

From soothing to a bared-teeth threat to gut "a fucker like that man" in the space of a few lines, 'Simmer' is all emotions at once. Equal parts euphoric and restrained, it's complex yet primal at heart. Hayley from Paramore might well return, but as she takes the limelight on her own she's everything we'd ever hoped and more. Simmer down? Not likely.
