Paramore front cover analysis
Paramore is an American rock band from Franklin, Tennessee, formed in 2004. The band consists of lead vocalist Hayley Williams, bassist Jeremy Davis, and guitarist Taylor York. The group released its debut album All We Know Is Falling in 2005, and its second album Riot! in 2007, which was certified Platinum in the US and Gold in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, and the UK background
Main imae1w The imagine of Hayley looks relaxed and free. Her body posture is upright yet rebel like. Her pose is yet funky and punkie. Her facial expression is squashed but looks fierce. This could be suggesting she read to right or rock out to the music. Her finger pose makes her look so relax as though she swearing at the reader. Although the picture may look simple its very vibrant. This magazine would be diverse in its gender because rock music is sound quite male dominated but the imagine dilutes this suggestion Her clothing is clean cut and simple which rings more attention to her face. Her hair seems to e playing the with music because its free following which could be representing her attitude. The background/setting seems to be dark and isolated which brings more attention to her and her freeness. The anchoring text to this imagine “ pop-rock’s brightest young rebels” also represent her imagine she portrays. Although you can say the picture is feminine because it’s a women, it becomes neutralized from the colour scheme of red and back.
The image of Hayley come across as defiantly fierce. Almost like a boxer. Her hand in a fist once again show she strong and a fighter. This imagine may have been formed because rock music may be seen a male dominated. But this image show Hayley representing it also for female. Her face is quirky which contrast to her fist movement. Her first movement also help to promote what in the magazine. It provokes the reader to read what is on her fist because it very distinctive “I am who I am with no apologies” this supports her imagine of a boxer. The colour scheme is red and white. It compliments Hayley red hear and her fierceness almost represents she on fire ready to battle. Hayley gives of an imagine of oxymoron. Sweet yet fierce. Hard but soft. This helps to appeal to both audiences. image2
The image now includes the rest of the Paramore band. Her pose is yet still quirky. She is vibrant here hair eyes and lip stick stand out like a swore thumb. Although this imagine is different from her other starring editions. She still the central imagine. Her fellow bands mates are push to the back and she still becomes the attention of centre. This may be because she is well known out the group and could have been purposely done. This image may now directly be aiming at male and females. I believe this because in previous features it just her and her pose seems to be unisex. But in this edition there are males members in the background which can appeal the female readers. Where as Hayley can appeal to the male. But it can also been seen that the female readers may aspire to be like Hayley like wise males may aspire to be like Jeremy Davis, and Taylor York. Dave has an anchoring text and say “I was going to crack him with m guitar”. This bring less attention on Hayley and more till the guys of the group. He looks laid back and calm. but the text represent a different side of Dave. A very controversy side the imagine her opposes. Image 3
