As Taylor Swift reclaims her music, she encourages others, like Ross Wilcock, to seize their own truths. Ross’ latest spoken word single ‘Ode to You’ is thoughtful and ambitious, but also humble as Ross recognises that he is one of millions who feel thankfulness for Taylor.
The performance is melodic and soft, set to ambient electro-acoustic soundscapes by Finn LeMarinel. Ross alludes to Taylor’s work, remembering ‘22’, ‘Blank Space’, and ‘Reputation’ in all the right places for a triumphantly emotional piece.
