Currently on their first headline US tour with Logan Ledger and off the back of a recent European tour, Ida Mae today release the video for their effortless track, ‘Love Is Still A Long Road’, taken from their debut album Chasing Lights – out now on Thirty Tigers.
Take a listen below…
Directed by Tom Cowles, the video for ‘Love Is Still A Long Road’ is a mesmerising show-reel of snapshots of Chris and Steph as they travel across the US, blowing away crowds with their gorgeous sound.
The video perfectly captures the love they have for performing live, as well as for each other. On the track and video, Ida Mae said: ““Love Is Still A Long Road” is in some ways about us. We’ve existed on the road together for so long with an almost Bonnie & Clyde lifestyle….travelling alone in the car in cities and countries we never expected to see. It is kind of about being bound to one another.”
Chasing Lights was helped with the guidance of legendary producer Ethan Johns (Ray LaMontagne, Laura Marling, Kings of Leon). The duo’s natural chemistry proved to be an ideal fit for Ethan Johns’ minimalist approach to production. “Ethan records live and very quickly,” explains Turpin. “He loves the naïve discovery of early takes. It could be terrifying at times, but we always trusted his judgement.”
