Valentine’s Day + epic Emo balladry = Paramore’s brand new video for “The Only Exception,” a track off the Tennessee pop-punk band’s latest release Brand New Eyes — one of SPIN’s favorite albums from 2009.
In the just-released clip, singer Hayley Williams — who recently reverted from blonde to her usual Tequila Sunrise hair color — retraces the steps that led her to true love. She rolls around in a pile of heart-shaped Valentine’s Day love letters, sulks in her room alone, and gets bored going on dates with identical-looking guys, before finally discovering “the one” at a rock concert.
The video is certainly a sweet V-Day present for Williams’ boyfriend, New Found Glory frontman Chad Gilbert.
