Alt-pop/electronic artist Golden Vessel releases his silky smooth new single "midwest". Taken from his forthcoming sophomore album, the track is a taster of the new sounds from the Australian artist.
Layered with hypnotic drum beats and spliced with lush electronics, "midwest" is a euphoric concoction. Intertwining lo-fi pop intimacies with hazy vocals, the single details the excitement of a forthcoming roadtrip. Laced with ethereal melodies and paired with a collection of soft-hued visuals, "midwest" is a dizzying delight that pffers a soundtrack for journeys across the globe.
"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.”
Golden Vessel's unique sounds continue to showcase a fluidity in minimalistic exploration. "midwest" is a soothing, placid number that enriches its listener with carefree melodies. This is purely a dreamy piece of electronic escapism to die for.
"midwest" is released via SUMOCLIC Records.
