Australian luminary Golden Vessel has made quite the name for himself in recent years. With towering streaming numbers across his discography and frequently played tracks like “Hesitate” and “Shoulders,” the multi-talented musician is flexible in both genre and sound. Back with his 10-minute electronic ballad “getforward,” Golden Vessel is more deliberate than ever.
Brushed by strokes of beat-driven melodies and faraway moods, “getforward” is a dreamy indietronica lullaby. Traversing dewy synths and reflective rhythms, this long-winded epic avoids redundancy with its hypnotic motifs. Released in parallel to a short film directed by Harry Deadman, “getforward” is a thorough, multi-faceted work of art.
