Written over a tumultuous 6-month period for the two artists, Take The Reigns is a stunning showcase of Russack and Denton's singular songwriting abilities, masterfully melding the prolific artists' signature sounds for a compelling listen that spans earnest pop, melodic indie rock and melancholic balladry.
The album was recorded in just a few sessions with friends. Dylan Young (Way Dynamic) recorded and produced the record and mixed half of it, with the other half being mixed by Liam 'Snowy' Halliwell (one of Denton's bandmates in The Ocean Party), who also mastered it. Dainis Lacey from Cool Sounds played guitar and bass on some tracks.
On this album the pair have captured an incredible friendship that has had profound ups and downs over the past year, yet has only grown stronger.
