Album Review: Tay Tay 1989


I’m ready to report back on the new Tay Tay album: Basically it is definitely more of a dance album than country. It most reminds me of Tegan and Sarah’s most recent Heartthrob album, with hints and tones of a synthesized Jaymay, Americanized Robyn, La Roux, and Enya/Bastille chants?…but not at all. Think some of Justice’s dance too.

Of course tay tay herself is extremely prevalent in voice especially, but overall it feels like an update of all those drive songs in the 80s and 90s and more like a group than a single voice.

GAs* also add: “It kinda reminds me of the 80s, but I guess that is what the title 1989 is about, the end of an era.” “I hear Enya.” Tiffany has been mentioned along with beats of 3 doors down, Iggy Azalea, Icona Pop and Neon Trees. “Savage Garden!” jk I think but cant tell if they mean that one.

No one has guessed it was Tay Tay and one was upset she liked it.
