Australian artist Golden Vessel now returns with his new single ‘littlebitwild’ featuring one of his good friends, Mallrat, and is also the next taste of his upcoming sophomore album named “colt” which is now set for release in October.
‘littlebitwild’ is the perfect anticipation builder for Golden Vessel’s new album and as we listen to it side-by-side with his recent single ‘midwest’, we get a pretty good idea for the range of diversity we can expect from the album when it lands.
Listen 'littlebitwild' :
As Maxwell describes just below, ‘littlebitwild’ began back in 2018 during a writing session in Brisbane with Mallrat and was later finished up in Los Angeles with a little help from another one of his regular cohorts, The Nicholas.
“’littlebitwild’ first started during a writing session in Brisbane with Grace (Mallrat) back in September 2018. Whenever we get together for a session, we usually write lots of little ideas moving fast, and then we take them home and develop them individually. When we made littlebitwild it was basically just her chorus and we were originally going to pitch it to someone else to finish, but then the chorus really stuck with me and I loved its sentiment, so I decided to hold onto it”.
He pursues about the track “Nine months later in Los Angeles I created a separate demo with my friend The Nicholas. We built this idea around these guitar loops that he was feeding me from a sampler and I wrote some verses I really liked but I just couldn’t nail the chorus. I spent a week going on walks, recording voice memos and writing lyrics but it just didn’t come together, but then, often as I do, I put those two ideas together and I found they merged really well. It took me another 6 months to get the structure flowing but it seemed as if they were stemmed from the same train of thought! To me the song is about caring for someone no matter where they’re at. Even through the chaos and poor decisions”.
Released via his brand new record label sumoclic, which he started with Connor Grant aka Akurei, ‘littlebitwild’ is now available everywhere, and we’re already eager to discover the full album! See you in October…
