Americana rock group Delta Rae are not just using their trademark four-part harmonies for making hits. They’re also striking out against inequality. The group recently released a video to their song “Chain of Love,” a powerful and moving arrangement that showcases the band’s supporting of marriage equality.
A six person unit from Durham, North Carolina, Delta Rae have traveled throughout the United States, making a name for themselves at this year’s South By Southwest. Now, preparing for the release of their debut album, Carry The Fire, which comes out on June 19, the group will be performing throughout the country, spreading their chain of love with each performance.
Written as a protest to California’s Prop 8, “Chain of Love” has since become a protest to a similar amendment in North Carolina, known as Amendment One. Hoping that the song and video will inspire many states to be fair and equal with marriage, Delta Rae is living proof that music can also contribute to change, and good change at that.
