Golden Vessel’s tour essentials are both practical & wholesome
Who doesn’t love a two-for-one? GOLDEN VESSEL gave us just that when he shared his new single ‘BIGBRIGHT’ and announced a national tour to go hand in hand with it.
Celebrating friendship, he enlisted the help of his pals Elkkle, E^ST and DUCKWRTH to pull together this track about being swept away by the feeling of new love. With collaboration being at the forefront of this one, it’s only natural that each of these distinct artists bring some bold type of flavour to Golden Vessel‘s tight production technique.
The track also arrived with a video accompaniment, which was shot over four days. This was the first time all four artists had been in the one space together, so the resulting clip is magnetic, stylistic and captures the best essences of collaboration.
Golden Vessel is kicking off his national tour in support of the track this Friday, so while he gets packing, we checked in with him to see what he can’t live without on tour, and the results are both practical and wholesome.
Couldn’t leave the house without my best mate. I’ve had Connor joining me on shows for years now and we lock in so well and it’s just good fun.
Olive leaf extract
I always get sick at the worst times and there’s nothing like olive leaf extract to knock you back into gear and keep you on your toes.
I tour with this homemade midi controller which is 6 Perspex cubes and sometimes it can fall apart after a flight or be a bit temperamental so I always pack a stick of blu tack just in case I have to patch it up pre-show.
I had a friend play an interstate show once and he went for a walk during the day and fell into a muddy body of water and didn’t’ have a spare change of clothes so always important to pack a spare set.
I always pack a point and shoot camera or two when I’m on tour. I’m really forgetful so it’s nice to capture the moments to look back on.
