Totten Bridge releases anthemic love song, ‘I Can’t Leave Us Behind’
New York-based musician Totten Bridge unveiled a new single, ‘I Can’t Leave Us Behind’, via StephJam Music on November 24th, 2023. Despite being influenced by the likes of Sam Fender, Thirty Seconds To Mars, Coldplay, and Imagine Dragons, his music is unbound by genre and showcases a distinct fluidity. Totten Bridge’s music could be best described as rock, with British and American influences that incorporate a variety of time-honoured pop motifs like, folk, Motown, and even EDM at times. Having already accumulated over 1.7 million streams across all streaming platforms, as well as support from the likes of Notion Mag, Earmilk, and Backseat Mafia, Totten Bridge blends melancholic melodies with fresh and driving beats. His recent single, ‘Better Than Me’,received support from online tastemaker CLASH Magazine.
‘I Can’t Leave Us Behind’ features a driving bass guitar set beneath an uplifting yet melancholic chord progression, later accompanied by an infectious four-to-the-floor beat as the song crescendos into its potent anthemic climax. Totten Bridge’s emotive and harmonic vocals are smooth and clear, while his lyrics explore the haunting nature of a romantic relationship in its aftermath. He bravely ponders about how powerful it is to hold space for the bittersweet experience of treasuring a person’s positive impact on you, instead of trying to eradicate them from your memory.
Totten Bridge divulged: “’I Can’t Leave Us Behind‘ is a torch song about a love that continues to linger on in the heart and mind forever. It simmers like a burning ember that cannot be extinguished and is a constant reminder when an old favorite song comes on the radio or when the sun sets. It’s a universal feeling that everyone has felt at one time in their life. It’s part of the journey through life and love and it’s what makes us who we are.”
