Still In Love With You

Album: Yet To Be Titled (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • Electro Velvet are a British duo comprising Alex Larke and Bianca Nicholas. Larke is a part-time primary school teacher who also performs with a Rolling Stones tribute act, The Rollin' Clones.

    Nicholas, who suffers from the serious genetic condition cystic fibrosis, was a contestant on The Voice UK 2014, although she failed to progress beyond the blind auditions. A single she released in 2011, "Hold On to Your Dreams, " sold enough copies to enter the UK Top 100 singles chart. Nicholas also has some acting work on her resumé; in her early teens she appeared alongside Johnny Depp in the 1999 Hollywood movie, Sleepy Hollow.
  • This up-tempo electro-swing track is Electro Velvet's debut song. It was selected by the BBC to represent the United Kingdom in the Eurovision Song Contest 2015. The song received a mixed to negative reception after it was debuted. Alex Larke defended the tune to the BBC, saying: "I like the fact it divides opinion. It's better than everyone having apathy for it."
  • The song was written by David Mindel and Adrian Bax White. David Mindel is a jingle writer whose previous credits include the theme tunes for National Lottery Live and Jim'll Fix It. He previously co-composed the song "Someday" for Olivia Newton-John that came sixth in A Song For Europe in 1974. Adrian Bax White is a classically trained multi-instrumentalist.
  • The song failed to impress Eurovision voters and finished 24th out of 27 with just 5 points.
