Following the release of her latest EP, Headsplit, which Maggie Lindemann dropped earlier this year at the start of International Women’s Month, the dark pop songstress has issued a captivating cover of Paramore’s 2008 single “Decode.” The song, which premiered in October 2008 on Stephenie Meyer’s website, served as the lead original track for the inaugural Twilight film adaptation.

Sharing the “Decode” cover on her social platforms, Lindemann writes, “you asked, so you shall receive my decode cover out on youtube now iloveyouuu @paramore”

In her cover of “Decode,” Lindemann’s delivery is both powerful and poignant, capturing a similar emotional depth of the lyrics and original iteration with her Girl Power authenticity. Her ability to convey the raw emotion of the track shines through. From the haunting verses to the anthemic chorus, “How did we get here/When I used to know you so well?/How did we get here?/Well, I think I know,” Lindemann’s vocal performance is nothing short of mesmerizing.

In her unique space carved out within the pop-punk world, Lindemann effortlessly blends influences from more formulaic pop-punk artists to darker alternative acts, crafting a distinctive sound that is entirely her own. In a 2022 interview with Business Insider, she delves into the female figures who have shaped her musical journey. “Paramore is one of my biggest influences. I look at a lot of artists, not even just pop-punk. Amy Lee of Evanescence is also one of my biggest inspirations. No Doubt, Gwen [Stefani], love Gwen. Garbage, Avril [Lavigne]. I really like women leads, so I’m super inspired by women in rock and in pop-punk, the resurgence.”
