Get tangled in Golden Vessel’s new song ‘Vines’
Close your eyes as GOLDEN VESSEL’s latest release ‘Vines’ tangles its way around you.
Featuring Melbourne vocalist WOODES, the Brisbane-based producer crafts gentle beats fit for an atmospheric listening sesh. Golden Vessel’s latest release is as soft as it is punchy, caressing the line between dreamy and dancey.
Golden Vessel has earned himself increasing notoriety in the Australian scene for his minimalist approach to music. Not distracted by pounding drops and warped crescendos, he instead opts for flurries of beats, radiating flickers of light and colour.
Woodes’ was certainly the right choice for a guest vocalist. She effortlessly nails the higher notes of the track before just as easily slipping back into her barely-there vocals. Woodes whispers her way through most of the song, her honeyed voice shimmies harmoniously with ‘Vines’ dulcet instrumental. The chorus hears a change of pace from the rest of the song, Woodes’ melody is echoed by a deeper and hardly identifiable second tone that rounds out the song’s hook.
With slightly erratic layering and a depth in the vocals, the bridge of the song is only a subtle separation from the rest of the song. But it is just enough to grasp those who have found themselves too lost in the beat.
Golden Vessel is certainly skilled in fashioning a warm ambience with his music. Lyrically and instrumentally, ‘Vines’ guides you tenderly through from start to finish.
