I really wanted to experiment with different
sounds as far as amps and guitars go. I wanted a
wider variety of tones on this record.
I played a Burns London Double Six 12-string
through a Marshall JTM 45 in the bridge of “Brick
by Boring Brick,” and it sounded really crisp and
chimey. It was very different for me, because I’m
not usually a fan of 12-strings, but it definitely
added cool element to the song.
For the intro of “Looking Up,” I saw it being just
the usual Paramore guitar tone, which is pretty bright
with lots of gain, but [producer] Rob Cavallo didn’t
think it fit the part. He suggested I use a slightly cleaner,
more lo-fi tone, which made the impact of the band
coming in way more exciting. It’s easy to settle for
any guitar tone for any song, but if you really dig in
and listen, I’ve found that each song holds its own
identity, therefore needing its own guitar tone.
It’s pretty basic but I believe strongly in it:
Write and perform what moves you.
