I Prevail released a brand new single yesterday called “Stuck In Your Head,” and the name definitely does it justice. The new track from the band’s upcoming record Lifelines is heavy but catchy–exactly what the band have become known for since their cover of Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space” got them serious attention back in 2014. Check out the new track below and for more inside info on the band, read our Q&A with drummer Lee Runestad right here!

I Prevail Takes on Taylor Swift’s “Blank Space”

The only Taylor Gang I’m a part of is the unofficial and unashamed T. Swift fan club, so you can imagine my excitement upon stumbling upon I Prevail’s post-hardcore cover of “Blank Space.”  Inspired by the pop princess’s 1989 chart topper, I Prevail does a phenomenal job reworking the tune into something heavy, angsty, and with an all around groove.  The production is solid and creates an ideal example of a cover, by both staying true to the original work but fully embracing it as their own.  In other words, it goes above and beyond just adding breakdowns and uncleans to a pop song like so many “punk goes pop” tracks tend to do, but it also doesn’t stray so far from the single’s initial integrity as to obliterate it completely.  Check out this track and let us know if you think this cover is a total hit or a swing and miss!
