GYROSCOPE – '4YRLV EP'

Aussie grunge band Gyroscope have surprised everybody today by not only announcing a tour but also dropping an EP that is guaranteed to have their fans salivating. One listen to the 4YRLV EP and you instantly know one thing –Gyroscope are back and they are back at their best.

The EP itself may only be three tracks, but these are three tracks of the best alternative music that you will hear this year. I put the album on this morning and I keep listening to it over and over… and I’m certainly not tired of it yet.

The title track captures that pure 1990s grunge sound that many of us fell in love with. It has a real wall of sound brutal hit to it while Daniel Sanders’ vocals are right out of this world. Close your eyes boys and girls and I swear that you can hear the strains of Nirvana buried deep on this track.

I Am The Night is a short and sweet piece of infectious grunge that buries itself into your mind. One listen and you are singing it to yourself over and over while Sanders’ strained vocals on Bloodstreams brings a new element to the band’s sound – a sound that you only hope that they explore more in the future.

The 4YRLV EP is one of the sweetest surprises of 2019. An amazing EP that showcases why Gyroscope are still one of the most important bands in Australia… bring on an album boys… BRING IT ON!!!
