Are you having a dark, cold Tuesday? Feel like Friday is nowhere in sight? Still want to listen to T-Swift? We have the perfect solution for you.
A rather scary cover of Taylor’s #1 hit from her most recent album is going viral today, promoting Swift’s music in a genre it surely hasn’t infiltrated before. The band responsible for the video, I Prevail, is from southeast Michigan. At the end of the cover, one member jokingly tries to give Taylor his phone number.
The beginning of the song has a nice sound, reminiscent of early 2000’s punk rock, but by the time the chorus comes in, the boys of I Prevail really show off their lung capacity.
What do you think of the cover? Does Swift mix with screamo? It certainly makes sense with the lyrics! At the very least, this genre crossover only furthers her complete domination of the music industry…
And who knows, maybe this cover will provoke Taylor to tap back into her goth roots like she did at 0:43 in “You Belong With Me.”
It’s Taylor Swift like you’ve never heard before…Watch the video here!
