Our friends at MP3.com recently relaunched their site, and to celebrate we’re helping them give away some fantastic new songs for free! Today, we’re featuring “Options” from Gomez.
Ever since their debut album Bring It On, which won Britain’s prestigious Mercury Prize in 1998, the members of Gomez have been marching to their own beat. On their new single, “Options,” they serve up another slice of their signature blues rock that’s slightly off-kilter, yet at the same time fully beautiful.
In addition to the sharp guitar work, the band’s secret weapons are its three vocalists, whose rich harmonies give “Options” (and other Gomez songs) a real emotional depth.
Gomez’s impressive consistency over the past 15 years is indicative of their strong grasp of melody and songcraft. At this stage of their career, they may not rock as hard as they did in their younger days, but that’s not the point. What matters is that they’re still writing great songs.
