Ex-Paramore Drummer Zac Farro Announces EP As ‘HalfNoise’

Written by Kiel Egging on September 25, 2012

Former Paramore drummer Zac Farro will release his debut EP under his new monkier of HalfNoise next week.

The self-titled, five-track EP is Farro’s first release since he and brother Josh left Paramore in December 2010.

Farro told NME he’s been sitting on the record for quite a while now – more than 12 months, to be precise.

“As soon as it was done, I was ready for it to come out. I always want people to hear it as soon as it’s ready, so to have to wait a year has been quite a challenge.”

Farro also said he believed that the project, which is strongly influenced by Sigur Ros and Radiohead, had “pushed him to the limit” and he expected that the sound would “shock people”.

“Ever since I was 17, I’ve worked on this, even when I was still in Paramore, I’d sit and work on these kind of songs.

“HalfNoise is an art project and it’s pushed me to my limit. I think people will be a bit shocked when they hear it that it’s the drummer in Paramore, but I hope to surprise people and open myself up to a whole new audience.”

Farro also revealed that he’d played almost all the instruments on the record.

“I played all the drums, I did all the sampling. Me and a producer called Daniel James did the guitars together, but it was mainly just me performing. There are trumpet, French horn and glockenspiel samples too. I write in the mind of a film score, that’s really the dream, what I’d like to be doing soon.”
