Lovers Undercover (demo)

Sodajerker demos
Brian and I are in the studio together today and whilst rummaging through the hard drives we came across this demo of a song called ‘Lovers Undercover’. We wrote and recorded this one afternoon earlier in the year for a pitch to an artist, but we’ve never shared the demo.

Hope you enjoy it.
