Golden Vessel’s Latest Single Pockets Full Of Rockets (feat. Mallrat & Emerson Leif) Is Your Perfect Chill Time Partner

Recently Brisbane artist, Golden Vessel recently gave us the next taste of his forthcoming album with the dreamy single, Pockets Full Of Rocks featuring the added talents of Mallrat and Emerson Leif.

Pockets Full Of Rocks is slow feel good tune that comes at you like a leafy afternoon at the park. Lo-fi style production and a soft vocal delivery from Mallrat and Emerson Leif make this one an ideal addition to your chilled out reading time playlists.

“pockets full of rocks’ started as an idea between Grace (Mallrat) and myself. It was sort of a half-idea that didn’t really have a home for a while. Grace and I have a joke that I always take the scraps/half-ideas from our sessions together and turn them into Golden Vessel songs, just like taking the wilted vegetables in the bottom of the fridge and turning them into dinner. That’s how our songs ‘little bit wild’ & ‘forever’ came together as well. I feel I just really like collaging ideas together and Grace always leaves me with the nicest ideas to run with.

 I knew I had to pair this particular idea with something great to be able to turn it into a full song. I found those Emerson Leif vocals on my laptop from a session we did together almost 3 years ago and as soon as I cut the two parts together, I had such a big moment of clarity for the whole album and direction the project was heading in.

 After combining Grace & Emerson’s parts together I realised that they told a story of two people trying to make a relationship work whilst also struggling with mental health. The meaning of the pockets full of rocks felt very timely with some personal things that I was going through and also everyone being isolated over the last two years.”Golden Vessel
