Titled ‘Queens of Golden Dogs’, the new project from Vessel, aka Sebastian Gainsborough, follows up their 2014 LP ‘Punish, Honey’.
Described by Tri Angle as, “exploration of living a life devoted to uncertainty, curiosity and change”, the album was conceived and developed over an 18-month period of solitude in rural Wales.
Drawing inspiration from chamber music, painter Remedios Varo and more, ‘Queens of Golden Dogs’ marks a sonic departure from Vessel’s previous offerings.
"I wanted to make this work to realise experiences that I thought I had already had,” explained Gainsborough via a statement. “Quite quickly I realised that I was reaching too far; and because I wanted so much more I had to give more. I often think that the writing was mutual."
Tri Angle are set to release ‘Queens of Golden Dogs’ on November 9, with a limited edition coloured vinyl drop due November 23. Pre-order the album here and listen to lead track ‘Argo (For Maggie)’ below.
