The Ballistics have adopted a more indie-pop style, while still keeping a bit of blues with this track, making it a sure favourite for 2015.

“The song came about by an overdose of a combination of David Bowie’s “Hunky Dory” and mid 60’s pop music. Much of the lyrics are adapted quotations of Lord Henry Wotton from Oscar Wilde’s ‘Dorian Gray’. It is a song that requires violent head thrusts and hand clapping to be fully enjoyed.” – The Ballistics’ frontman, Nicholas Forbes on the inspiration for Gramophone.

The talented four piece has decided to release this independently produced EP for free to the public. Fans will have the option to pay for the music as well, which will go straight back into producing their next release closer to the end of 2015. In essence, giving their fans the opportunity to aid them in producing more of their favourite sound.
