SC6 New Music Pick: Gomez , 'Options'
It's been a while since we put up a New Music Pick (or anything aside from Cartoon of the Week or Founders Quotes for that matter). Anyway, once in a while, we'll hit a music rut. Then we'll switch channels, and find something new. Today, we highlight Gomez....
Not sure where they got the name, but we doubt it was from John Astin's character on 'The Addams Family'... Hailing from Southport (England, not North Carolina), they are made up of singer/guitarist Ian Ball, bassist Paul Blackburn, singer/guitarist/keyboardist Tom Gray, singer/guitarist Ben Ottewell and drummer/synth Olly Peacock, they have a standard peppy English sound. kinda reminds me of Spoon, but they're a rarity - not many bands have 3 singers, so who knows who's singing what? But, it does giving you room to be well rounded and balanced.
Here is a clip of their song, 'Options'. Enjoy, and we'll see you soon!
