Lovers Electric are no strangers to the road, constantly travelling and moving their lives from place to place. Many told them they’d eventually have to settle down, but they’ve continued to buck that trend. The married couple are back in Adelaide and recently filmed a video in Whyalla that will accompany a track from their upcoming album Strangers, to be released in August.

It’s a twelve track album, with a video to be produced for each song. David & Eden joined Chris in the studio for a chat and to perform a few songs – including one recorded live on Periscope!

Lovers Electric will be performing live at The Wheatsheaf hotel with the Bearded Gypsy Band on July 10. Tickets are sold out.
