Soothsayer are thrilled to share ‘Statue Garden’, the final cut to be shared from Sydney producer Dro Carey’s debut album Nothing Is A Solo Project, ahead of its release on Friday 18 September. Leading into the release, Dro Carey has also launched his ‘Captured Sounds’ initiative – an experiment in creative collaboration.
Premiered on FBi Mornings, ‘Statue Garden’ sits in striking contrast to Dro’s recent sun-soaked singles, presenting a heavier composition that entices you to the dark corners of life, manipulating tension and texture to create a compelling house tune.
