Alarm Pop: Katy Perry – ‘Roar’

Welcome to ALARM POP where every day we give you a brand new tune to be your soundtrack for the day!

It leaked over the weekend so we absolutely have to talk about the brilliant new debut song from Katy Perry, entitled ‘Roar’. ‘Roar’ is an absolute beast of a tune – appropriate given the amount of tiger imagery – and while it’s not a big EDM dancefloor hit, it’s definitely full of hooks and earworms that cement Perry’s position as a princess of the radiowaves.

The song is a midtempo, more mature jaunt into the ‘putting yourself back together’ sort of song and while some might consider it a rip-off of global hit ‘Firework’, it’s more solid and composed and sincere than that tune. Her vocals are pretty on-point too and that final chorus is truly fantastic. A new age of Katy Perry is amongst us and we’re very excited to see what emerges from new album ‘Prism’.

Go check out the unofficially-leaked ‘Roar’ which is now out for download:
