“Golden” is the debut single from SAINT WKND, the rapidly rising 22 year old beatmaker, and the first track to be lifted from his forthcoming Golden Youth EP. Falling instantly into earworm territory, “Golden” features vocals from Australian group Hoodlem which entwine with SAINT WKND’s progressive synths.
He had this to say about the track: “I woke up at 2am and had an urgent feeling to make music. I stared writing and finished the song by 8am. ‘Golden’s’ instrumental was done, but I wanted to add vocals to it. I knew about the indie group Hoodlem and luckily when I was on tour in Australia in 2016 I met them in Melbourne and we recorded the vocals in their home studio. It’s a very honest song and I hope people will enjoy it.”
SAINT WKND, who’s amassed 25,000,000 streams to date, series of bootlegs and official, remixes for Chet Faker, Saint Motel as Chicago’s Louis The Child.
“Golden” is out now and released via Nothing Else Matters.
