Bio

Fonteray is the new project of Melbourne-based multi-instrumentalist Drew McCarty.

With a penchant for vintage synthesisers and groovy basslines, Fonteray seeks to create vibrant, emotive and sonically rich soundscapes that are just as evocative as they are danceable.

Grounded in elements of indie and neo-soul, while saturated with the warm and colourful qualities of disco and psychedelia, the music is distinctive yet familiar, with particular attention given to unique timbres that ooze character.

With Fonteray’s debut single ‘Stay Close’ recently released and another on the way, the songwriter plans to use the project as a conduit for creativity and expression, which will continue to evolve and mature over time.

Love the wiggly array of keyboard sounds that populate Fonteray's new track. Lush and luxe bedroom pop vibe.
