Gallops - Yours Sincerely, Dr. Hardcore

Convincing ‘laptop band’ stuff
Gallops - Yours Sincerely, Dr. Hardcore

You could say Gallops create ‘textured math rock’, but realistically it’s as if Super Mario himself started an innovative metal outfit in The Mushroom Kingdom, influenced by John Carpenter scores. ‘Yours sincerely, Dr Hardcore’ is all considered guitars parts and tight, hard drums with a thoughtful blend of synth beep and bleeps; resulting in an hypnotic energetic instrumental album that’ll appeal to rock and dance fans alike. The Wrexham’s quartet nonlinear time signatures build exciting exuberant, teasing, intriguing, Eighties-tinged sprawling collages. Get ready to go out to this, or go out and get involved with this. Either way, this is convincing ‘laptop band’ stuff.
