Gomez - Live Review 9/23/2011 - SLC, UT

Gomez are one of those English bands that have been around for awhile and have put out a handful of albums but just never seem to crack the USA as they should. There is so much talent in this band consisting of Ian Ball (Vocals, Guitar), Ben Ottewell (Vocals, Guitar), Tom Gray (Vocals, Guitar, Keyboard), Paul Blackburn (Bass), and Olly Peacock (Drums). The beauty of Gomez is the variety that they bring to their sets. They are a band that do not have one individual that stands out above the rest, they all share equal parts in creating an honest sound. Ball, Ottewell, and Gray all share vocals and are featured singing in a variety of songs together and separately and this really gives them a dynamic sound and stage presence. Their set featured a mix of songs from their catalog but mainly focused on their newly released 7th album 'Whatever's On Your Mind'. The highlights for me on the night were 'The Place And The People' kicking things off as the third song and the last song from the encore 'How We Operate' which closed the set with a guitar mash up that will not be forgotten.
