As you know, Taylor Swift released an album over the weekend titled Folklore that she recorded during quarantine. She co-wrote some songs with The National's Aaron Dessner and enlisted Bon Iver's Justin Vernon to sing in one of the songs, "Exile."
Taylor has always been a fan of folk and indie rock/pop, but this is her first time making an album that's heavily indie-adjacent.
Though many of her fans love The National and similar indie artists and bands, there are still some who consider Folklore their entryway to indie. If you're one of those fans and are craving similar albums that are just as stunning, here are some you definitely need to check out.
