Brisbane’s wonder kid, Golden Vessel, aims his electronic bow high, following it with a keen eye until his ears rest on the perfect sonic target. For us he is already a legend. Yes Ma’am has been tracking his impressive production manoeuvres since he hit the scene. We are super stoked to have been able to interview the young talent as he released his stunning debut EP earlier this week.
Fusing his love of chilled electronic possibilities with a strong cast of guest vocalists including Woodes, Okbadlands, MTNS, Lastlings and Abraham Tilbury, Golden Vessel has delivered a quintessential debut release. Before Sleep is a delight to the ears and steady on the heart.
Tell us what you love about making music?
I love to collaborate with people and forming friendships around this love of sound.
And I also love the ability to try anything sonically and to make something at 2am in my bedroom that people will get to hear.
What are you most excited about the new EP?
Apart from the songs themselves I think i’m really excited about the bonus content that i’ve brought together (that you can grab off bandcamp) as well as the EP tour i’ve got approaching soon
Lots of great collabs in there. What new tricks did you discover in the process?
A new plug in I got places digital harmonies on vocals, so you can create awesome depth if you use it subtly. I also experimented with getting a lot of physical instruments (synths + drums + guitar + mandolin) which was heaps fun and I want to pursue this further
What’s the nicest thing anyone has done to support your talent?
I think the amount of work my manager puts in is the nicest thing. He’s so hard working and puts a lot of belief in me and it really pushes me to go the extra mile with music
With Before Sleep now alive and kicking what’s your next big goal?
I’m just planning on writing a heap with a lot of people and to slowly but surely figure out what new GV material is gonna sound like.
Anything else you would like to add?
Come to the tour if you’re in Brisbane, Sydney or Melbourne. It’s gonna be a good time.
