Really, the simplest way to describe the sound of Gyratory System is to call it bonkers. Bonkers in a good way, that is. This week they release new album 'Utility Music' which again uses retro sounds to make a futuristic record, although it's maybe a little less bonkers than what's gone before. Single 'Old Harmony' (perhaps a follow-on from their 2011 album 'New Harmony') isn't quite as brain-frazzlingly mad as some of their work, but it's definitely unusual; a curious mix of German industrial electronics from decades gone by and more modern production. That twisted trumpet appears from time to time just to give you a little surprise and lift the song. What sounds like equally contorted guitars make an appearance too. For Gyratory System 'Old Harmony' is reasonably normal, but being a band that doesn't really do normal, it's still pretty bonkers.
