Golden Vessel – “Shoulders (ft. Elkkle & Mallrat)” // Luisa Rivera

Sometimes you get a collaboration that you didn’t even know you could dream for. Producer extraordinaire Golden Vessel teams up with Elkkle and the razor-sharp Mallrat on a song about longing, the shifting nature of friendships and relationships, and tangled webs of feelings. It’s remarkable how much this small team accomplishes over the course of three-and-a-half minutes, from the percussive workouts and subtle synth programming to Mallrat’s impressive wordplay that manages to stay honest and relatable. All of it’s anchored by the main vocal, who knows what the object of his affection needs but doesn’t know how to give it to her. Remarkably mature and well-executed, this one’s worth any heartache it might bring to the surface.

So yeah, I’ll be back in just a second…  Read more
