Olivia Rodrigo’s new single, ‘Vampire,’ is her clever and catchy musical return


Olivia Rodrigo’s new single Vampire is her grand musical comeback after her musical absence following the release of her album Sour two years ago. Vampire is the first single from her upcoming album Guts and is packed with both passion and talent, leading it to go viral, especially on TikTok immediately after its release.

Like much of her music, this song features rock instrumentals which beautifully juxtaposes her calm vocals and the piano.  This makes the song both exciting and enthralling for the constant change in pace engaged me while listening. It is also an emotional rollercoaster, fully captivating my attention, feeling sad in some parts while I wanted to scream out the song in others.

The song explores her feelings regarding a relationship and fame, but as she always does, Rodrigo is able to execute such a message in a way that does not have an exclusive meaning, but instead one that can relate to anyone as her beautiful writing is laced with hidden messages, teenage passion, and catchy tunes.

This song is without a doubt one of her best works, between her genius concept of comparing a vampire to her ex and her incredible vocals that have only become more powerful throughout the years and continue to define her talent as a budding artist. After listening to this song on repeat and singing along to it with my friends, I am confident in saying that with every listen, both myself and others, grow more and more excited to hear the rest of her amazing work in the approaching release of Guts.
