This space-themed downtempo burner is the latest from Golden Vessel, combining a thickly intervallic lead vocal with a circular lyrical conceit. The music video feels the way the song sounds: shot in bumpy slow-motion, with a hook that comes in and out like an ambulant satellite.
As for the production, the mix is packed with a seething energy and a flow about dream-space: the difference between living and just observing. The thrill here is a sort of projection, like a shadow on the moon:
But still, there’s steeper climbs that you’ll never know
Never stray, so you never choose
At least you like to dream about it
I, for one, welcome our new astronaut overlords.
Brisbane-based producer Golden Vessel has been a household name in his native Australia since 2013. This song is featured on our CHILL Angeles playlist.
