The iconic Perth quartet return with Some Of The Places I Know - the first single off their forthcoming new album. Written in honour of the sweltering Perth weather, the single is laced with infectious energy and enthusiasm.
Very different from the slightly darker tones that Gyroscope produce. And it didn't really appeal to me at first but after a while it started to sink in quite well. There were elements that never usually crop up in Gyroscope's songs which also made this song very interesting. The vocals are pretty much borderline rap at some points which is something that grabbed my attention whilst the piano helps add strength to the song. All in all, a very good effort from a very exciting Australian band!
Overall rating: 7/10
A little less grunge, a little more melodic rock than the usual Gyroscope you’re used to hearing, but this tune still has all the elements of a great hit, and hasn’t steered too far out from the usual that diehard fans won’t appreciate it! Some of the places really allows, Daniel Sanders soothing vocal talent to shine through, over a simple but effective riff, this particularly evident in the final chorus/bridge.
Some of the places has an epic vibe; it’s the kind of tune you would be lost deep in thought to whilst on a long drive. The more you listen to this one the more it grows on you. Progression for these boys is looking to be a good thing, and Cohesion is promising to present fans with a diverse and entertaining track listing, with Live without you the first preview track from the upcoming album far from the likes of some of the places.
I recommend this track to anyone who appreciated their previous release Australia.
