Conceived over an 18-month period of solitude in rural Wales.

Vessel has today announced the release of their new album Queen of Golden Dogs, the follow-up to 2014’s Punish, Honey.

The producer has shared the single ‘Argo (For Maggie)’, which marries orchestral string stabs with propulsive percussion for a sound that is equal parts Arnold Schoenberg and Oneohtrix Point Never.

According to Tri Angle, the album’s diverse influences include chamber music and the painter Remedios Varo. It marks a stark departure from the producer’s previous work, combining chamber-rave freak outs with vocal segues and neo-classical pieces.

Queen of Golden Dogs will be released digitally on November 9 and on limited edition coloured vinyl on November 23 via Tri Angle Records, and is available to preorder now.
