Track of the Week: “See The World,” by Gomez
January 19, 2011 2 Comments
Gomez has a great, laid back, off-centered vibe and “See the World” is a great example of that. The main riff is fun and interesting while the band’s arrangement is warm and inviting.
By layering lots of acoustic instruments, Gomez creates a very authentic sound. There is one electric guitar that plays a small part in the arrangement during the chorus, but it too has a warm, natural sound. Together, these instruments have a very woody, cozy sound. There’s no studio tricks here, just great sounding instruments playing a catchy tune.
So if you’re looking for warmth in your songs, turn off the rack-mounted effects processors and mic up an acoustic guitar.
