Retuning to his indie roots, Young Franco turns to close friend Golden Vessel for the woozy collaboration "Underneath". Coated in a lush feelgood vibe, the single combines the pairs irresistble sonics to create a damn good tune.
Floating above the glimmering sonics, Golden Vessel's woozy vocals soothe with their calming tones whilst Young Franco's production fuses summery beats with soulful notes to create a buoyant, fizzing single. A sun-drenched slow burner, the indie-soul hybrid showcases the pair at their best. Brimming with plump piano chords and melodic synth patterns, "Underneath" perfects the ambience for introspective reflection.
"Max and I have been friends for a couple of years now. We've always worked together but never had a full song that we've co-produced and co-wrote in the same room," explains Young Franco. "It was very special to release this song becasue of how easily it came about. Max recorded some chords on his piano. I wrote the bassline and we just went from there, sending it back and forth as well as Thenicholas adding some beautiful vocals and harmonies."
Of the single, Golden Vessel says: "To me it feels like it's about that corny moment at a music festival or a concert where you've spotted someone a couple of times and you lock eyes with them. Your favourite band is playing and you feel really conencted with this stranger even though you know nothing about them."
A match made in heaven, Young Franco & Golden Vessel emit an abundance of good vibes. "Underneath" may be their first collab since 2019's "Otherside", but with the greatness of this track, we're all banking on a few more coming our way.
