GOLDEN VESSEL has officially announced his upcoming Right/Side EP with the release of his new single, 'Less~More' feat. OKBADLANDS. 

GOLDEN VESSEL has officially announced his upcoming Right/Side EP with the release of his new single, 'Less~More' feat. OKBADLANDS. This latest offering is the the third single of the EP and comes ahead of this year’s upcoming BIGSOUND 2017 showcase, where both Golden Vessel and OKBADLANDS will be performing.

‘Less~More’ marks the half way point of the six-track EP's unveil, following on from recent tracks ‘Tell The-Girl’ featuring Emerson Leif, and ‘Shoulders’ featuring Elkkle and Mallrat. These first two singles have already received massive airplay on Australian independent radio stations, as well as accolades from both local and international media.

'Less~More' is another wicked team up with the artist's fellow Brisbane amigos OKBADLANDS, who also featured on his previous Before Sleep EP. Mixed by Tristan Hoogland (WoodesHuntlyEmerson Leif), this sweet and suave jazz-esque number comes alongside a gritty official video offering, forged as a collaborative effort between Golden Vessels and director Harry Deadman. The footage was shot on a range of film formats, pairing lo-fi visuals with higher resolution digital images to encapsulate the track’s intricate textural layers and polished production.

Golden Vessel describes his vision for the clip, saying, “I wanted to create a music video that was fast moving, but had this feeling that OKBADLANDS and I were just dancing in front of our bedroom mirrors. I met Harry Deadman and his small team who are into filming multi-format and old-film medium videos and thought the switching between Digital, 16mm, VHS, photos + more formats would create the movement and textures that were within the song musically."

The track itself highlights the continued progression of Golden Vessel's capabilities as a songwriter, combining dynamic production with intriguing sounds, unpredictable tangents and an ultimately captivating experience. He has clearly been hard at work over the past few months, pushing himself into new territories, and now we're seeing the fruits of his labour - and we love it. Using his forward thinking production with OKBadlands' Kate Gurren's impeccable vocals, he's once again breathed new life into his work to create something utterly unique.

Golden Vessel's Right/Side EP will be showcased live at the at the TBC Club on Tuesday 5 September as part of the BIGSOUND festival, prior to its official release on 29 September via Exist.Recordings.

The producer is then set to embark on a national tour in support of his label-boss and all-round good mate The Kite String Tangle. You can find the dates below and grab your tickets HERE.
