Aussie artist Golden Vessel (aka Max Byrne) takes us into alternative wonderland in his new video “BIGBRIGHT” ft. Elkkle, E^ST & Duckwrth. Directed by Harry Deadman, the video is an intricate world of chromatic fashion and semi-retro cinematography that makes you feel like you’re watching Alice in Wonderland on Acid…whether Alice is on acid or you’re on acid is a mystery. But the video is quite a colorful trip where the four stretch the boundaries of your imagination:

“With my new music I wanted to take what I tried-out on ‘Shoulders’ with two vocals and really push it to another level, because I love having unique perspectives within songs. When Elkkle and I started writing ‘BIGBRIGHT’ together around Bigsound in Sept 2017, I knew that I wanted to try to have 4 different vocals on the song (including myself). Elkkle and I sat on our two vocal version for a while, and it wasn’t until 6 months later that I found myself working with Duckwrth in LA, and I asked him at the end of a session whether he’d want to jump on the song. The day after Duckwrth recorded his verse I asked E^ST via facetime to see if she wanted to be part of the project and showed her the song, and then less than 2 hours later she sent back an idea that was recorded through a MacBook mic.” shared Golden Vessel.
