Hayden Thrope shares 'Golden Ratio'

New album 'Moondust For My Diamond' out now

Ahead of its release, Thorpe is pleased to share 'Golden Ratio', a joyful and expansive cut from the upcoming record. The technicolour production on 'Golden Ratio' and 'Moondust For My Diamond' brings Hayden together for the first time with cult innovator Nathan Jenkins (Bullion) as well as long-time collaborator Richard Formby.

Thorpe talks about the new song: “When I was writing 'Golden Ratio', I landed upon it as a kind of simple devotional song to science. I see music very much as a replication of nature, the shapes and patterns that we perceive in music are found in all kinds of things like flowers and shells. Science and mathematics have allowed us to decipher this hidden order. Writing songs therefore becomes less about summoning from within and more about noticing what’s already there.”
