The Keep is the solo project of Gothenburg-based producer Oliver Knowles (Snow Ghosts). According to the press release, he combines his Indonesian heritage with a love for drones. Primer is the solo debut album which will be out on December 6th via Houndstooth. It is a collection of drones, noise and rhythms influenced by the vibrancy and excitement of Spanish and Catalonian street festivals that take place in Barcelona each year, where the record was written.
“Barry Manny Drone” is the first excerpt. Speaking about the track Knowles said “‘Barry Manny Drone’ is about loneliness. The track is meant to be a kind of reassurance, or comfort blanket.”
