Elk Road, Australian solo artist and producer Rory Garton Smith, has released his new song -Hanging By A Thread' today. The track features vocalist Natalie Foster and premiered last night on Triple J Good Nights with Linda Marigliano.
-Hanging By A thread' is about keeping integrity and believing in yourself, and as Rory explains, it's disguised as 'a Summery-Spring time anthem". Rory co-wrote the song with Johnathon Boulet and Ali Barter, then teamed up with the talented Nat Foster (of Tully on Tully) to finish and feature on the track. Natalie has plenty of admiration for Rory's musical ability; "I loved working with Rory even from the opposite end of the country! I recorded the bridge vocals in my home studio while it was pouring with rain. It was so loud that I had to wait it out for ages until it was quiet enough to be heard in the recording."
This is the follow up track to -Not To Worry' and -Lights' which have been played on stages all around Australia including Splendour In The Grass and Curveball at Carriage Works as a part of Vivid Festival, where Rory shared the stage with the infamous Zhu and a huge amount of brilliant Australian talent including Basenji, Cosmo's Midnight, JOY., Nicole Millar and Yuma X.
Upcoming shows include Arcadia (with Alison Wonderland/Leftfield/Carmada) in Perth, and the annual Southbound festival in Busselton (with MSTRKRFT, Nicole Millar, Cat Empire and loads more).
