Gomez - Girlshapedlovedrug Single Review
Gomez, Girlshapedlovedrug, Single Review
This folk and skiffle layered, paranoid jaunt from the journeying Brit rockers of Gomez promotes their chorus hinged swagger. Ben Ottewell's Beck replicating vocal clarity has stayed remarkably intact through years of constant project. It is the centrepiece that is decorated by swirling guitars and rumbling percussion that lies back and allow Ben's rhythmically yearning cries to dominate proceedings, often building like a therapy session as the root of all his problems is exposed. Gomez are determined not to become a relic of the end of last century (remember the hazy 'Bring It On' of 1998?), and the swift building catchiness contained on this number will more than likely aid them in this plight.
Gomez Girlshapedlovedrug Independiente Single Review
Fast-approaching their tenth anniversary together, Gomez are soon to release their fifth studio album "How We Operate", the follow-up to 2004's "Split The Difference". The band will be on tour in the UK in June, before an extensive jaunt across North America.
With a solid and bouncy bass line, "Girlshapedlovedrug" reveals itself to be a joyous track fused with all the warmth of the summer sun. Guitars sing bright melodies, while harmonies snuggle up to your ears – all adding up to create a merry little indie number.
