Crack in the Road

I’m starting to feel like maybe there’s no point in anyone outside of Australia making music at this present moment in time.

With the sheer amount of brilliant music coming from down under, it’s far and away the most exciting ‘scene’ in the world right now. Sixteen year old Golden Vessel aka Max Byrne has a mightily bright future, and his two debut outings, Stairwell (featuring vocals from Anna Kirkman) and Tidal Wave are sure to gain the sort of hype he deserves. Now electronic producers collaborating with female vocalists is no new feat by any means, yet there’s a dexterity to Byrne’s production that sets it alongside the likes of Disclosure, Flume and MMOTHS in terms of quality. It’s one of the most beautiful tracks of the year. Check out both tracks below.
