Circulatory System: Overjoyed [Track Review]

Circulatory System

I don’t know what I was expecting with Circulatory System, but one thing is for sure: it wasn’t this. “Overjoyed” has massive backing noise, a dark mix of romantic cello lines with trip-hop-ish beats. Such instrumentation would possibly lead one to think of intense vocals or even hip hop rhymes. But you get neither — instead, the listener is treated to wonderful little folk-pop vocals. Altogether, the result is fascinating and truly one-of-a-kind.

The band may dub themselves psychedelic pop electronica, but I feel there’s a fair share of experimentation to be found in Circulatory System’s music. “Overjoyed” is off Circulatory System’s upcoming record, Signal Morning, out next week on Cloud Recordings.
