Golden Vessel’s glitchy beats have become a favourite of ours at Stoney Roads, and the Brisbane based artist is back today with a brand new collaborative effort, ‘Shoulders’.
Teaming up with local heads Elkkle and Mallrat, Golden Vessel builds a calm atmosphere on his latest offering with his poignant take on easy-listening electronica that is amplified with the lush vocal cuts from his collaborators.
Speaking on the origins of this track, GV says “Shoulders was built from this wonky synth recording that I had laying around. Most of it was out of key or a bit too weird, but there were a few little seconds of pure gold in there that I really wanted to use, so I tried to build a track around that. I took that idea with me when I went to write with Elkkle at his parents property on Phillip Island for a couple of days. We quickly started writing the melody and lyrics together, and then started forming the track. I’d been working quite a lot with Mallrat (recording and producing for her) and I felt like her delivery would blend well with Elkkle’s. After she came back with her verse it all pulled together really nicely.”
Golden Vessel is pairing this release with a string of shows along the east coast of Ausralia that kicks off later this month. Listen to ‘Shoudlers’ below and be sure to head along to one of the shows.
