Taylor Swift dropped Folklore, a new album that has been well-received by fans and others who like music. Part of that drop was “August” a song about romance at the end of summer.
Like “cardigan,” the song discusses having a romantic time only for it to come and go, a common theme in Swift’s music. I will say, even though the lyrics of the song were sort of in that commonplace for Taylor Swift, I did think the music was incredibly was composed. It had a soft pop feel to it that really compliments the song and gives it a relaxing feel to it.
On another note, I do feel like her album Folklore is a sort of return to form for Taylor Swift. She may have been bullied into becoming more political by her Hollywood peers and more toxic fans, but I do think the songs I have heard from this new album is hopefully a sign she is at least returning to the music that we all loved.
