SINGLE REVIEW: When The Demons Come by Taylor Sheridan

Australian singer-songwriter Taylor Sheridan’s latest single will no doubt be a game-changer for him. Having released two independent EPs and a string of impressive singles, Taylor has returned with a powerful new track When The Demons Come. In the last year Taylor, who began his career in rural Victoria, has been reaffirming his reputation as a compelling live act and an artist to watch in 2020, appearing at the regional Red Hot Summer shows, as well as opening for Vanessa Amorosi and Jon Stevens on their nationwide tours and appearing alongside major Australian artists including Pete Murray, Thirsty Merc, Daryl Braithwaite and John Farnham. The new track has great significance for Taylor; it reflects all the challenges that arise from experiencing mental health issues. But ultimately the song is about surviving those challenges. As Taylor says about the song, ‘When I was writing and in the process of making it, I found myself staring straight into the face of a lot of personal demons and to be completely honest, this song was my outlet and saving grace in many ways. From a time of feeling pretty low and isolated, came a project injected with as much strength and fire as I could muster up at the time and that was my way of taking the power back!’. And that statement sums up this emotionally-charged track: it’s all about transformation, healing and revival. The song also has all the hallmarks of a hit; a passionate vocal performance, a dynamic and luminous production and memorable melodic sections that reinforce the depth and scale of the lyrics. Although Taylor is reflecting from a personal perspective the song has a universal appeal, with one in six Australians experiencing the trials of mental health, this song is bound to connect with many people. When The Demons Come is a song about overcoming those problems, with the opening line of the chorus succinctly capturing this attitude: ‘When the demons come and they’re just no fun but I’ll greet them anyway’.
