Ahead of the release of his debut Before Sleep EP next week, Golden Vessel has decided to give us one last preview with a stunning new single called -Wave', which features the gorgeous vocal work of Brisbane duo OKBADLANDS.
'We've been working with Max on our own debut ep over the last few months, and we were excited when he asked us to collaborate on one of his own songs. Because we'd all been working together already, we had a writing rhythm going, and the song came together really naturally. -Wave' is about being at the mercy of your thoughts and how you can avoid them, but eventually they will catch up with you." – OKBADLANDS
Like many of Golden Vessel's tracks, -Wave' started out as a simple beat he'd created on his laptop. He then added a piano melody throughout before asking Joe Thiang (of MTNS) to lay some drums over the outro of the song. Then it came to working on the vocals & lyrics, and the first people that came to mind were Sally and Kate from OKBADLANDS.
'I'd been working with Sally and Kate over the last few months producing tracks for their debut ep. I really loved working with them, and they are both immensely talented, so I decided to see whether they wanted to collaborate on this track. After a quick creative discussion over some burgers, I got stuck into finishing up the instrumental and OKB had the vocals finished within the week" - Golden Vessel
-Wave' is available now from iTunes and Spotify, and will also be up for free download via Golden Vessel-s Soundcloud until the Before Sleep EP release on June 21.
Golden Vessel has also just announced his first Australian east-coast mini-tour for this June/July as he takes the Before Sleep EP to Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.
