Carey Clayton is carving out a unique space in modern music. As an introspective and poised songwriter, he draws his inspiration from the likes of Bon Iver, Radiohead, and Biblio. His conceptually dense musical collages run through an acid wash of electronic manipulations, twisting guitars, and tactile percussion.
His debut release as a solo artist, ‘Not of Plastic’ is about the temporary nature of relationships; and how like any organic matter, they eventually decompose. While the lyrics may seem despondent, there are shudders of brightness to remind us to appreciate the ones we love.
Love we do. And as this single courses through the veins of expectations of living, it’s a bitter-sweet contention for the dreads of challenges and of the happiness to come.
A gray of good and the immortally unpleasant.
Carey wants to hope that we all can accept and break through.

Hope everyone is staying healthy and making the most of this unsolicited time to stay at home- whether that be taking the time to relax or work on projects that you’ve been meaning to get to. Here’s a cover of one of my favorite @bibio_artist songs “Ode to a Nuthatch” This music is so calming and peaceful I figured everyone could use something like this right now. The full video link is in my bio. Stay positive👍 . . . . #bibio #englishfolkmusic#folkmusic#calmmusic#peacefulmusic#acousticguitar#riffwars#riffwarsacoustic#fingerpicking#indieartist#warprecords#guitaristsofinstagram#guitarist
