Melle Dielesen on “If I”

”I wrote ‘If I’ at a moment in my life when I felt stuck in a lot of ways. Creatively, sexually and psychologically a lot of things needed sorting out. That song – the first one we taped for our upcoming record ‘Dadcore’ – kept reminding me of changing my ways throughout the whole process of recording the album. I guess that’s what I love music for the most: that it can elevate you for a while and make you look past all the little routines you got going for yourself.’’
