Off The Record – ALBUM FOCUS – Evermore, Taylor Swift

Have you ever wanted To listen to a new band or musician and not sure where to start? Well, instead of listening to their commercial music, why not start with something off the album first!  Today we look at the new album that was released as a surprise just before Christmas by Taylor Swift – Evermore

Champagne Problems

This song starts with a piano with an echoey feel to it to create this sense of emotion to the track. The song has a calm feel to it with lyrics about love and family. The piano is a nice contrast to the familiar guitar sound related to Taylor. The song takes you on a narrative journey as well.

Tolerate It

This is another track that opens with dramatic piano melody and again it is a track that feels like it takes you on a narrative journey like a lot of folk tracks. Yet again this song has themes of love in it again. This song has undertones of an electric style drum beat – it is really subtle but it creates this sense of a heartbeat in the track and sort of gives the sense of movement to it.


This song has a more upbeat sound to it and intertwines the sounds of guitar and piano to create this upbeat sound to the track. It also has this melody that creates a sense of nostalgia which is very clever as that is what is reflected in the lyrics. The fact they discuss playing together, the music sort of reflects the child like state of this song as well.
