Lovers Electric go Simply Red
by Walter Price
In 1995 Simply Red was in an odd but good position worldwide with their Life album and their single “Fairground”. The track hit #1 in the UK (their only one I believe), sold amazingly well in Germany and found moderate success on US radio but as I recall the song was a huge club hit everywhere.
This is now and and indie-pop perfectionists Lover Electric (Eden Boucher / David Turley) have taken the classic pop tune in a retro-80’s direction and surprisingly not so surprising; made it contemporary.
