The new Golden Vessel track is quite the summer chill jam.
Teaming up with fellow Aussies Elkkle & Mallrat, the 3 create one of the lightest ways to start your working week. Yep, "Shoulders" = your happy Monday!
The song is taken from Max's upcoming second EP and it a perfect showcase of how fast is he diversifying and improving his production skills. The beat is just flawless.
"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.
