Just recently Golden Vessel launched an indie label called sumoclic with his good friend Akurei, and he’s also been busy working on his next album which will be titled ‘COLT’. And off of ‘COLT’ comes this new single ‘midwest’ which is the first taste of what we can expect from that.
Australian artist Maxwell Byrne is Golden Vessel. And the artist, being known for crafting a unique sound that blends elements of electronic music with hip-hop, RnB and alternative pop, can be likened to a mix between Four Tet, Toro Y Moi and Brockhampton.
Said Maxwell: “I wrote ‘midwest’ in the summer of 2018 in Brisbane. I was starting to make a new album in my parent’s lounge room while they were overseas, and I made ‘midwest’ spread out on the floor late one night. I was just about to spend a fair amount of time touring and driving across America and so I guess this song is about me waiting in anticipation of getting out on the road. It feels a little weird to write songs in anticipation and then sort of live out what you wrote about like one big foreshadowing but being out on the road in America with my friends has been one of the highlights of my life.”
Understated gumption is prevalent in the vibes of Golden Vessel.
