Single of the Day: Brandon Flowers – Can’t Deny My Love

Berselang 5 tahun setelah album solo pertamanya, Brandon Flowers kembali merilis album solo berjudul “The Desire Effect”. Single berjudul “Can’t Deny My Love” didaulat menjadi lead single dalam album solo kedua dari vokalis band The Killers ini. Lagu “Can’t Deny My Love” ditulis oleh Flowers dan Darren Beckett, seorang drummer dari band The Red Romance.

Secara umum lagu ini berbeda dengan lagu-lagu Flowers di album sebelumnya. Lebih banyak sentuhan synth dalam “Can’t Deny My Love”. Meski begitu, beat dan dentuman drum serta solo gitarnya membuat kita merindukan lagu-lagu poprock era 80-an. Setelah dirilis, single ini kemudian menjadi Most Viral Track No. 1 di Spotify UK. Banyak pujian terhadap lagu ini, PopJustice bahkan menyebutnya “Haim meets Pet Shop Boys meets The Killers”.

Di tengah populernya lagu-lagu bernuansa electronic dance dan RnB, karya Brandon Flowers bisa dibilang cukup nyentrik. Tapi hal itu tidak mempengaruhi Flowers sama sekali. Ariel Rechtshaid yang menjadi produser dari lagu ini dianggap telah mewujudkan apa yang diharapkan oleh Flowers. “I’m not necessarily looking for a new audience. I’m definitely not catering to my audience either. I just love these songs. That’s the most important thing. I’m not jumping on a bandwagon. Ariel was really able to bring things to the now. My sound was stuck in 1978 and he brought it into the future,” ucapnya dalam sebuah wawancara.

Musik Video untuk lagu ini pun dibuat dengan konsep yang cukup unik dan dibumbui denga cerita sihir. Terinspirasi dari cerpen lama tahun 1835 berjudul “Young Goodman Brown” karya Nathaniel Hawthorne, Brandon tampil sebagai tokoh protagonis yang meninggalkan istrinya.

Lirik
“Can’t Deny My Love”
Open up, till the night our bed
Is underneath a heavy moon
Cast a doubt like a shadow
Walking through the corners of the room
I always thought I have a full tank to go

(but not tonight, you’re not alone)

I always thought I’d find my own way

(What’s going on in your head now?
Was it something I said?
I know that you’ve been living in the past
What’s going in your head now?
Maybe something I said)

It’s driving me crazy, and you can try to lie

But you’re not gonna, not gonna deny
No you’re not gonna, not gonna deny my love
And you can run to the hillside
And you can close your eyes
But you’re not gonna, not gonna deny
No you’re not gonna, not gonna deny my love
You can’t deny my love

The eyes of God are watching over us
So we don’t break the golden rules
The seven seas, have we learned
Or are we sailing on a ship of fools?

I always thought I had a full tank to go
(but not tonight, you’re not alone)
I always thought we’d get there someday

It’s driving me crazy, and you can try to lie

But you’re not gonna, not gonna deny
No you’re not gonna, not gonna deny my love
And you can run to the hillside
And you can close your eyes
But you’re not gonna, not gonna deny
No you’re not gonna, not gonna deny my love
You can’t deny my love

When you close your eyes, tell me what you see
Locked up in your room is there any room for me?
In the spoils of your mercy
In the reverence of your bed
In the cradle of the morning
What was it that you said?

What’s going in your head now?

You’re not gonna, not gonna deny
No you’re not gonna, not gonna deny my love
And you can run to the hillside
And you can close your eyes
But you’re not gonna, not gonna deny
No you’re not gonna, not gonna deny my love
You can’t deny my love, my love
