Gary Dranow's 'Chaos' Shakes the Indie Scene: A Revolutionary Blend of Blues, Country, and Rock!

Gary Dranow's 'Chaos' – A Masterful Fusion of Blues, Country, and Rock Resonance

A lowly blues sound. The guitar chooses its strings wisely and a chord falls out between them, harmonising with a droning string in the back. The room fills with warm light and the music swirls in it, refracting the warmth into deep blues and purples, cutting the melody up into sections and breaths. The song begins to build, bluesy and wholesome still, almost country-like. The wind rattles the rafters, the patrons in what you now feel to be a tavern look up at the sound, the swirling building sound. Then it changes its tune, turns on a dime, and out pours the rock.

‘Chaos’ is a single from the illustrious Gary Dranow. This single stands apart from the others Gary Dranow has released in its all-encompassing structure. The single plays not just in rock, but in blues, it dips its toes into country, the chug of the guitar could even fall into a metallic camp. There’s so much to unpick here, and so much to praise about the way that each influence and each stage of the single bites and locks together. It’s raw and powerful, as all of Dranow’s works are, but there is also a newfound delicacy, especially in the opening section. What’s more, the vocals have now to shift and switch with the instrumental. It’s a feat of rock writing and a feat of performance.

With so much going on in one track you would think it would be jarring but it’s not. Not in the slightest. And that’s what makes it so golden to listen to. The beat flows through the whole track, the bass helps it tie the knots that hold the whole thing together and the vocal changes in steps, not in great leaps. The coordination and endless creativity showcased on this single will keep it in my mind for a very long time coming. An incredibly accomplished rock track.
