‘Please Dont Love Me’ follows suit. Featuring quirky, tongue-in-cheek lyrics, Totten Bridge sings about love’s finite time frame, and how often we reference ‘forever’ in our relationships. Featuring latin percussion and a tasty EDM beat, ‘Please Dont Love Me’ showcases an array of eclectic guitar melodies over tropical house chords.

Totten Bridge had this to say: “I wrote “Please Don’t Love Me” as a tongue-in-cheek ode to the joys of living life to the fullest and living and loving in the moment. I wanted the song to be fun and playful and enjoyed while hanging out at the beach with a bunch of friends. I wrote the song on guitar and then built the tracks around the basic guitar chords and melody. The melody and song itself came pretty quickly but it took some time to get the song to where it is now.”
