Rising Australian producer Golden Vessel (real name Max Byrne) returns with a sultry mix of future electronic R&B on his latest offering Shoulders featuring fellow Australian natives Elkkle and Mallrat. The subject matter of Shoulders” is about someone's relationships, from friendship to deep love.
When speaking on the collaboration Byrne shares, “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 golden 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 parent's 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.”
“Shoulders speaks to all kinds of relationships from friendship to deep love.” Elkkle remarks, “Shoulder’s was drawn out of discussions Max and I were having about relationships… The way they develop through technology and how it keeps a relationship relevant to us, the importance of unconditional support and just being upfront with your intentions.”
This new hot single, Shoulders is available everywhere now in collaboration with Exist Recordings. It’s rhythm along with the genius lyrics tranquil the body and mind into a state of bliss. Its message about one’s relationships is powerful and true because everyone goes through it. Perfect relaxation song.
A native of Brisbane, Golden Vessel found himself falling in love with electronic music at a young age, studying the synthesizer and the techniques of his favorite producers. A unique mix of influences has molded his sound into a distinct lo-fi downtempo style touching on pop, hip-hop, and delicate soul sensibility. As Golden Vessel puts it, “I want to convey in my music everything I love about music.”
