It was the start of a beautiful friendship, and they’ve now made four albums in three years.
Despite its long title (Something Is Going To Change Tomorrow, Today. What Will You Do? What Will You Say?), this record is like a series of short stories. “I’ve been seeking authenticity,” Denton sings. “I’ve been seeking it my whole life.” And the search for something real is successful – it’s as if Russack and Denton are in your lounge room singing just for you. “And it’s all here to see without the self-consciousness,” Russack confides.
Their brand of cosy folk-pop comes with heavenly harmonies and subtle instrumentation. The result is gently revealing. In a word: intimate.
Something Is Going To Change Tomorrow, Today. What Will You Do? What Will You Say? by Emma Russack and Lachlan Denton is out Oct 8 via Spunk.
