With Luxxe 'Love Me' Or Don't

When I first listened to "Love Me" -- the track we're premiering by pop-folk band Luxxe -- I struggled to hear the lyrics. There's a slurred quality to this song, like the emotions are larger than the words that relay them. In fact so large are the feelings of love that there is something existential about the track as there is something existential about love. To love someone is to see someone for who they really are, not for who they were or for who they are to become. This song is the classic love conversation, the message being, "Don't follow unrequited love. Love me, because I know you, and love you." This song is hopelessly romantic, and listening to it, there is a sense of urgency; we have no idea which person the lover will choose, we hope not the unrequited.

Maybe then, this song is less about being loved, as we don't know who the lover will chose, and more about making intentions clear. I know you, and love you, and am letting you go if you so choose. And that's not even discussing the sonic elements of the track. Luxxe's lead singer is tender and forlorn-sounding. Add a flutist and stand up bassist, and this pop folk style band sounds rightly romantic.
