Thanks for all the suggestions and apologies for not responding earlier.

Took a step back, worked through methodically, and got good results:
- Re-recorded the vocals an octave higher in places
- Slimmed down the arrangement, which benefited the track anyway as allowed for more dynamics and more contrasting timbres and textures
- Got more aggressive with EQ on instruments to separate from the vocal
- Carefully tuned the frequencies I'm applying dynamic EQ/multi-band compression - think I'd misjudged which frequencies were most important for the vocal to cut through the mix without impacting everything else.

The end result is dense where I want it to be but the vocal is always intelligible.
