Check Out Vessels “Deflect The Light” (Feat. The Flaming Lips)

Leeds-based five piece electronic artists Vessels are pleased to announce details of their upcoming fourth studio album, The Great Distraction which will be released on September 29th via Different Recordings. The Great Distraction features collaborations with a variety of artists including, The Flaming Lips, John Grant, Vincent Neff (Django Django) and Harkin (Sky Larkin). Speaking of The Flaming Lips, they collaborate on the single “Deflect The Light” which was released today. It’s funny how things work out like that, isn’t it?

“Deflect The Light” is a skittery electronic track that slowly finds itself in a steady groove that builds into a euphoric release. The band comment: “Working with the Flaming Lips was a highlight of this whole process,” says the band’s Pete Wright. “There is no facade; Wayne Coyne lives and breathes the very same eccentricity and optimism that pervades The Flaming Lips’ music, and our entire correspondence start to finish has been a torrent of enthusiasm and silliness. They latched on to the spirit of the music we sent and then amplified it a thousand times over, drenching it in their unmistakeable identity but never eclipsing ours. I am so proud of what we made together.”
