Ahead of the release of his new album ‘Moondust For My Diamond’ on Friday, Hayden Thorpe is sharing newest single ‘Golden Ratio’.
“When I was writing Golden Ratio, I landed upon it as a kind of simple devotional song to science,” he says. “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.”
