We have broad tastes, but we must admit that we like artists who are exceptional and prolific. Of course, part of the reason is selfishness, as it makes our job easier. But it also is better for you, the reader, as it makes it more likely that lazy people like us will bring you good music. So we find ourselves featuring more music by Emma Russack and Lachlan Denton, whose debut album When It Ends graced these pages about three months ago. In a happy but surprising turn of events, the duo are back again with "I'm Right Here", a new song from their soon their soon to be released second album, Keep On Trying. The song perfectly showcases the magic that this collaboration offers. The pop craftsmanship on this piano-driven track is top class, and vocal interplay is warm and uplifting. Our appetites are duly whetted, and we eagerly await the album's other delights. Fortunately, the wait won't be long.
Emma has been a member of bands and a solo artist, while Lachlan's solo work has paralleled his membership in The Ocean Party, which is one of our favorite bands. Keep On Trying is out July 18 via Osborne Again Music.
