Life on Eris – husband and wife duo Chris Carmack and Erin Slaver – have released their new song ‘The Risk’.
Available to download and stream now, the song finds the couple pulling inspiration from their own love story. Head-over-heels while exploring their then-hometown of Nashville, TN, they fell for each other over writers’ rounds and a mutual passion for Pop-Country music.
Stripping back the production for a tender melody, Carmack plays both his acoustic and homemade electric guitars, bass, and drums, while Slaver stirs emotions with her violin, mandolin, and piano.
“The lighthearted nature and production of ‘The Risk’ takes us back to an earlier, more carefree time in our relationship; before we took on the responsibilities of starting a family and the realities of married life,” Slaver shares with Hollywood Life. “However, its message also reflects the pandemic, as the ‘risk factor’ seems high these days just walking out of your front door. The song’s lyrics are rooted in the memories Chris and I shared during our first few dates.”
“‘The Risk’ came out of our need to write and share a lighthearted, happy song that could garner a few smiles from us and our fans. We didn’t overthink production, we just played our instruments and sang,” Carmack added with Hollywood Life. “It was not surprising that it came out sounding more like the Country music we were making as individuals before we started our band.”
Life on Eris premiered their romantic self-directed lyric video for the song with Hollywood Life.
