Mutual Groove released “Let Yourself Be Loved” last month as a reminder to fans of the importance of self love. The band made it to the Elite 8 of this year’s Music City Mayhem with their soul-fueled funk, and this new song is another great tune to add to their repertoire. “Let Yourself Be Loved” is Casey’s DJ Pick of the Week!

With skilled guitar riffs, groovy percussion, and striking brass, Mutual Groove makes “Let Yourself Be Loved” into the epitome of funk. Because of the well-crafted sound and positive energy, the song turns into the perfect dance-worthy jam. The band say on their website that their goal is “to make stationary listening impossible.” Accordingly, we think you’ll have your toes tapping in no time.

“Let Yourself Be Loved” is simple in its message: open yourself up to receive love, and you’ll reap the rewards of doing so. 

“Sit on down and let yourself be loved,

love’s a gift, so open your heart up,

no need to justify, just know you’re good enough.”

In a post on their Facebook page, the band explained how they are genuine about their message of positivity. “We believe it’s necessary to give and receive love as often as possible,” they wrote. When you give love to your family, your spouse, your friends, your dog or cat, your job, your passion, your dreams — to YOURSELF — you will fulfill your heart’s purest desire in expressing itself.”

The song makes clear the magic that can emerge from combining well-crafted funk and heartfelt energy. Check out the official audio video for the song below!
