Lover I Don't Have To Love - A Bright Eyes Cover by Daphne Lee Martin

Celebrating Valentine's Day with a new, unapologetic non-love song from Connecticut songstress Daphne Lee Martin. For three years now, Daphne has traveled to Boston to play The Outlaw Roadshow radio program and unveil a new love-themed song for our audience and readers. This year, she is choosing a most unlikely cover by Bright Eyes. It's a twist without a knife, and completely gorgeous!


"Lover I Don't Have to Love" by Bright Eyes has been one of those go-to songs that I use when coaching my bandmates' performances. I show them live performances that I feel capture the rage and passion and sorrow and fear and recklessness that I want the piece to convey, and Bright Eyes has several live performances of this song that just slay, so we decided to take a crack at covering it, says Martin.

Bright Eyes get the cover treatment.

"I've never been too technical with music theory terms when asking for what I want from my band, because it's more about feeling than execution. This song ranges through so much emotion: it growls, it weeps, it doesn't give a fuck, it is a bottomless hole, it is lazy and fierce, delicate and cruel. It smells like bad decisions. And though I still loathe the sound of my own voice, this song is just perfect."
