Aussie artist 1tbsp, the side project of Golden Vessel aka Maxwell Byrne, is back with two brand doublebangers titled “Dhollandia” and “Circles.” Both are delicious house tracks that takes you to a night out clubbing with its breakneck rush of hip-shaking hooks. “I’ve been wanting to put some double singles together for 1tbsp that are a little more club orientated than the Kanashī EP. Over the last few months, I’ve been throwing these events in Brisbane with my friend Connor called ‘sumoclic night’ which I’ve been DJing at, and it’s been so interesting to see what does &doesn’t work with the audience each night,” shared 1tbsp.

Speaking of the two singles, 1tbsp shared: “‘Dhollandia’ was built around a synth recording that my friend filous sent me. He has an insane collection of vintage music gear, and he recorded the chords on a Selmer Paris Clavioline. After piecing the track together, my friend Allan (from Close Counters) helped me cut together some vocals which felt like a unique combination to the synth recording. 

‘Circles’ started out as an idea for Golden Vessel during a writing session with my friend Rhian (aka Straight Girls), but after it didn’t quite fit anything for my upcoming album, I thought I’d try reworking the idea into something for 1tbsp.”

Both singles are out now via sumoclic.
