Of her recent Glastonbury set, NME wrote: “With second album ‘Prioritise Pleasure’ broadly celebrated as both a comfort album and a  societal interrogator, Taylor never shies away from a chance to talk about the people and issues that are dear to her heart. She dedicates ‘You Forever’ to ‘Big Jeff’ Johns, the music superfan who was injured in a house fire earlier this month, and then ‘The 345’ to “our sisters in America” following the Roe vs Wade abortion overturn in the US.

“Voice wavering as she sings its chorus (“Whatever you choose / There’ll always be me waiting up for you”), it sits alongside ‘I Do This All The Time’ as a real set highlight. The perfect balance of tough love and heartfelt warmth, it’s no wonder that the crowd holler back at her with such commitment. Who needs an advantage card when you can garner this kind of loyalty?”
