Taylor Pearlstein wrote the song So Far about her anxiety. She sings about worrying about the past, stressing about the future, and never feeling like there’s enough time. Pearlstein wanted to create an anthem that people could put on to reground themselves in a commitment to not missing the now. The title of the song honors what we have been capable of so far and reminds us that there ‘IS’ still time. So Far is a dancing-with-tears-in-your-eyes kind of track that balances joy and sorrow.
Anxiety can be very difficult to deal with. For this reason, it’s crucial to look at the bright side of things. Make sure to set aside a few hours each week to do something you enjoy. Whether it’s going for a walk in the park, listening to your favorite album, or catching up with friends over dinner, don’t let anything get in the way of your happiness. You’ll not only feel better, but you’ll also feel like yourself again.
The verses in this song have a singer-songwriter vibe to them, with subtle production and a slow tempo. The chorus, on the other hand, sounds more energetic and poppy, with a punchy beat and backing vocals. This contrast between the verses and the chorus is one of the key factors that makes So Far so compelling.
