2016's Take Control is the sophomore set from up and coming UK punk duo Slaves - Isaac Holman (vocals, drums) and Laurie Vincent (guitar, vocals) - and follow-up to their 2015 Mercury Prize-nominated debut Are You Satisfied? The album was recorded at Jackson Browne's studio in Santa Monica, CA with Beastie Boys legend Mike D who also appears on the groove heavy track "Consume Or Be Consumed." Ian Dury's son Baxter also guests on "Steer Clear." Vincent on the album to NME, "It's some very old Slaves, some last album Slaves, some new stuff. It's a bit of everything. It's more developed than the first album, there's more of a landscape. It's heavy, lyrically and how it sounds. Some of it is like how ‘Sugar Coated' on the first album is really punky, although some is the total opposite."
