Gyratory System create instrumental tracks using what they call 'The Process' - a mixture of a fixed backing tracks married with woodwind improvisation which is then chopped up and processed in unusual ways.

Vice have called Gyratory System 'Liquid ecstasy'
NME compared Barons Court Turret to Kraftwerk, The Normal and Art Of Noise while describing it as 'lurchy, lovely thing.'
The 7" features one b-side 'The Hardest Science To Forget' while the download EP version features 4 tracks in total.
