Aussie artist Golden Vessel has teamed up with good friends and regular collaborators Mallrat and Emerson Leif for a brand new track, premiering today via The Music.

Following on from eee featuring Rei So La and Abraham Tilbury only a few weeks ago, pockets full of rocks is another taste of his forthcoming album, everythingeverydayeverything, scheduled for release in June.

pockets full of rocks started as an idea between Grace (Mallrat) and myself,” Golden Vessel said.

“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 littlebitwild and 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 three 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 and 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.”
