Plain White T's, "Rhythm of Love"

4

Plain White T's have been active for more than a decade, although the group is still most recognized for penning the saccharine smash "Hey There Delilah" in 2007. The Illinois five-piece tries to score another hit with a new lead vocalist on "Rhythm of Love," the beach-flavored first single from sixth album "The Wonders of the Younger." Guitarist Tim Lopez takes over for frontman Tom Higgenson and croons in a polished falsetto, "We may only have tonight/ But 'til the morning sun, you're mine, all mine." The heartfelt vocals melt over an island beat and acoustic guitar melody, and Higgenson provides a soothing harmony over the choruses. Plain White T's have again found a winning combination of chords and catchy lyrics-and possibly a radio hit to follow the success of "Delilah."
