Aussie Love Song for Prince William and Kate's Wedding a European Hit

David & Eden : Lovers Electric

An Australian singing duo Lovers Electric who have been living in Berlin for the past few years quietly building a cult following have had their new release adopted by Germany's biggest TV network as the theme song for the April 29th wedding of HRH Prince William and Kate Middleton.
Originally from Adelaide, David Turley and wife Eden Boucher's new love song "Love Can Save Us" began being aired last Friday on the top commercial TV network RTL and it will be featured during every show in which the Royal wedding of the century is discussed, RTL promos as well as the actual live broadcast when an estimated 35 million Germans will watch the network's coverage.

The exposure is certain to catapult the two into fame throughout Europe

David and Eden were in London about 18 months ago rehearsing when an invite came out of the blue to audition for RTL producers. They performed 3 songs live and the producers immediately snapped up the song. The pair moved back to Germany to work on a new album of love songs "Impossible Dreams." The single and  album will be released by Universal Music in Germany, Austria and Switzerland on April 22

The pair who have been together since they were both 17 have music and performing in their blood. Eden used to perform with her 6 sisters, dancer mother and musician father while they travelled Australia in a camper van. 

David has been playing piano, composing and singing since his school days, encouraged by his poet father and pianist mother who is also a songwriter.

Lovers Electric have slotted nicely into the hip artistic Neukölln district in Berlin with both claiming the area is inspirational in the composing of their pop-rock songs. The pair are also active in agitating for refugee and asylum seeker rights . David is quoted as saying : "Our songs are often about a greater concept and how perfect the world can be if we all care for one another".

The opening verses of 'Love Can Save Us' and video can be viewed on Lovers Electric's website and below is an earlier song and video "Could this be.."
