Australian producer Golden Vessel gives us the next preview of his upcoming second ep this week with an incredible new single called ‘Shoulders’, and in true GV style it features two of his good friends & very talented artists in their own right, Elkkle and Mallrat.
This is one of those tracks that gets stuck in your heads for days with its infectious wonky beats, off-kilter synths, bouncy rhythm and hip-hop directed vocal flow from Elkkle & Mallrat. Wow, what a tune!!
“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. 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
