My newest musical love comes from the North Carolina based band Delta Rae. I will even forgive the fact that multiple band members are Duke alumni. The song I’m loving is their new single “If I Loved You”. Despite the kind of upbeat tone of the music, the lyrics are all about a woman who has a wonderful man in her life who would make a great companion except that she’s just not in love with him. I adore songs that have a juxtaposition of musical tone and lyrics and this is a great example. Now excuse me while I go and listen to this on repeat a few more times.
