Golden Vessel – Shoulders (ft. Elkkle & Mallrat)

Rising Australian producer Max Byrne, a.k.a. Golden Vessel, returns in style with Shoulders, the follow-up to his last single offering Tell The-Girl. For his new single, Byrne has teamed up with fellow Australian artists Elkkle and Mallrat, whose voices float over a liquid mix of future-r’n’b textures, shimmering electronics and playful beats. Everything feels right in this track, starting from its daydreaming mood.

Speaking on the creative process behind the song, Byrne said: “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 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.
