Arizona singer/songwriter Savannah May dropped her new R&B single “Maybe If I” this past week, and it has been on replay in the Dorman household since its release.
The chill, vibe-y production (courtesy of producer “lunatix”) is itself a great sell, but the lyrics are what makes this single a buzz-worthy song. The track brings listeners into the mind of the troubled half of a failing relationship, a place most of us have known at one time or another. Savannah May asks the questions of herself: “Maybe if I…” fill in the blank. The underlying question is, how do I make this person love me?
The soulful chorus brings us to the realization that this person will just never love the singer, and that being true to ourselves is the most important thing at the end of the day.
The smoothness of the track contradicts with the pleading, confused lyrics, but bringing everything together, the song does exactly what it’s supposed to: it reflects the ironic and tumultuous ebb and flow of romantic relationships.
The perfect song for a summer drive, “Maybe If I” is available for free download at Savannah May’s SoundCloud, as a teaser to her mixtape MAYDAY, which will be released July 7th, 2014, in time for her southwest tour (dates TBA).
