Churches, ‘Lovelife’ – Free MP3 Download
Something about a band named Churches writing a song to espouse marriage equality puts a sly smirk on my face. And to make it even better, it’s a damn catchy indie rock track complete with an infectious, Coldplay-esque “Oh-ohhh” hook.
The trio’s not just hopping on the Prop 8 bandwagon, though. This issue is one dear to frontman Caleb Nichols’ heart.
“I wrote ‘Lovelife’ after a lifetime of watching people debate the ethics of being myself — that is, a gay person,” Nichols told Diffuser.fm. “I don’t normally write political music, but I don’t consider the song political — and that’s the point. Being an LGBT person isn’t a political statement — its a product of biology, and it sucks to have to live in a world where politicians on both sides of the aisle profit politically from turning our love lives into a wedge issue.”
