‘Vessel (b-side)’ showcases Patricia’s adept production skills and transforms the delicate acoustic tones and imposing string section of the original track into a warped electronic affair with warm bass, twisted samples and haunting vocal harmonies complimenting her pensive musings. The accompanying video reflects the dark and dreamy track with a chilling performance from Patricia on an isolated beach among pulsating visuals.
Regarding the single Patricia says, “‘Vessel’ is a song I wrote about how the world perceives you, about how it expects you to grow up and mould to what’s happening around you / to you. I wrote it to kind of get a better understanding of it all but it just kind of made it all more messed up.”
‘Vessel’ received great support in Spotify’s New Music Friday playlist as well as being featured in Top Tracks Of The Week selections from The Independent, Hot Press and Nialler9.
