Annuals / Lovers Electric
London, Water Rats



Article written by Ged M
Nov 26, 2006.
I thought I heard a little whisper that North Carolina�s Annuals were worth seeing but it turned out to be nothing but gas. I should have feared the worst when I saw how the stage was set up for six people; even though the Water Rats stage isn�t tiny, it�s crammed with instruments: two keyboards and samplers, two guitars plus two drumkits and an extra drum for hyperactive frontman Adam Baker to release surplus energy. When they start playing, it�s confirmed: they�re an American Guillemots, mongers of overwrought songs that smack of prog and �classic rock�, especially on numbers which start slowly and then rock out, like �Brother�. While watching them I receive texts from a mate at another, better gig, which makes my sense of being trapped all the greater. Where do I go to claim back the time wasted?

Lovers Express are much better. From Adelaide, South Australia, they�re play pure keyboard-led pop with super-sweet hooks (not for nothing their best song is called �Honey�) and are fronted by the glamorous Eden. There�s a monstrous Peter Hook bass grumbling in the heart of the songs which confirms them as a neat 80s-influenced electro-pop band. - Ged M

Palladium, Cologne, Germany

Orchestral Manoeuvres in the Dark (OMD), Lovers Electric

These were such great news when OMD were guests in the German TV-Show “The ultimate Chartshow - the most successful artists of the 80ies” in 2005. After this performance Andy McCluskey and Paul Humphreys said in an interview they are planning to work together again. There was it once again - wonders can always happen. In January 2006 there was written on their official homepage they want to produce a new album and want to go on tour in 2007 with the original members. Before that, they had already performances in different German cities during “Nokia’s Night of the Proms” in late 2006. There is still no new album out, but we had the opportunity to celebrate the old hits with OMD in Cologne. It seemed many fans were waiting for this moment, because they had to change the venue from the E-Werk to the bigger Palladium. Too many people wanted to see the guys again. OMD - Forever live and (never) die!


Lovers Electric

Eden and her six sisters grew up together in their motor home in Australia. David with his poet dad and pianist mum also grew up in Australia and played his first gig at 11. Eden and David met as children. Eden moved to Britain, became a designer and started her own fashion label. Eden and David met up again in Australia, fell in love, got married and started travelling all around the world with a street theatre company.

Review from www.listennashville.com

February 6th, 2007 @ The Basement—LOVERS ELECTRIC

New Faces night at The Basement on Tuesday February 6th showcased the talent of the UK's Lovers Electric. Making a trip across the pond for shows in New York, Nashville, and Los Angeles, Lovers Electric are Eden and David. Originally from Australia and now residing in the UK, Lovers Electric presented an hour-long acoustic set of original songs from their recently released self-titled full-length debut album. Visually stimulating, Eden infuses her fashion expertise into the duo's stage presentation—Eden was dressed in a sexy little green dress and David was dressed like an Oxford University grad student. But as Lovers Electric began their set, it was immediately apparent that these two lovers were not merely a cute couple.

Lovers Electric deliver 80's influenced alternative dance pop. Performed acoustically, LE proved that every song shines with very little instrumental accompaniment—the mark of great songwriting. Eden's vocals are reminiscent of shy-sounding Olivia Newton John, while David rounds out her squeaky flirtatious tone with pitch-perfect McCartney-esque backing vocals. Eden sings the lyrics, which are mostly clever rhymes containing little nuggets of wisdom, in a dramatic fashion that is convincingly genuine—as if she is re-living the original experience that inspired the lyrics. The entire audience at The Basement was pulled into Eden's emotional delivery, as the sometimes chatty Basement crowd was completely silent during this special hour. To be sure, Lovers Electric are so completely comfortable with themselves onstage that I suspect these lovers have had theater training.

Briefly stated, tonight's performance was part Olivia Newton John, part Regina Spektor, and part Berlin (yes, Berlin). In which direction these two lovers will evolve is unpredictable. Regardless of the musical direction they choose, my guess is that Lovers Electric will be selling out small clubs within a short span of time.
