Acclaimed Australian producer Golden Features has officially released his highly anticipated sophomore album, “Sisyphus,” via Warner Music Australia / Foreign Family Collective. The album marks a significant milestone for Golden Features, being his first full-length release in five years. Following a restorative and transformative period in Berlin, Tom Stell, the creative force behind Golden Features, immersed himself in the city’s renowned techno scene, drawing inspiration from the underground clubs and energetic atmosphere.
During his time in Berlin, Stell ventured into unfamiliar territory, pushing his creative boundaries and experimenting with new concepts. The album’s title, “Sisyphus,” is inspired by the Greek mythological character who was condemned to an eternal struggle against a seemingly impossible task. Drawing parallels between the mythical tale and the vibrant nightlife of Berlin, “Sisyphus” presents a collection of tracks that showcase Stell’s signature dark soundscapes and captivating dancefloor energy. The nine-track album takes listeners on a journey, capturing the highs and lows of a memorable night out.
Reflecting on his artistic growth, Golden Features shared, “For this album, I wanted to push myself well beyond my comfort zone and try concepts that were unfamiliar to see what I was capable of.” With a career spanning eight years, Golden Features has established himself as one of Australia’s most sought-after electronic musicians, collaborating with notable artists such as The Presets, K Flay, Thelma Plum, Julia Stone, and more.
“Sisyphus” features previously released singles, including “Flesh,” “Touch” featuring Rromarin, “Vigil,” and “Endit” featuring Rromarin, which have collectively garnered over 6 million streams. The album also introduces five new singles, including “Yield” featuring Rromarin, “Vapid” featuring Louisahhh, “Ether,” “Butch,” and “Hound.” Each track showcases Golden Features‘ unique blend of dark, atmospheric tones and infectious rhythms.
With its compelling sonic palette and undeniable dancefloor potency, “Sisyphus” solidifies Golden Features‘ reputation as a masterful producer. The album is now available for listeners to experience the evocative musical journey crafted by this visionary artist.
