Aussie artist Golden Vessel takes us into a chill indietronic soundscape titled “littlebitwild” ft. Mallrat. Taken from his upcoming album colt, out on October 15th, “littlebitwild” features the dynamic interplay between GV’s and Mallrat’s vocals that explore loyalty to someone despite all the chaos that goes on. Enjoy:

On the single, Golden Vessel shared:

“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.

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.”
