Download the outstanding new track and get air drumming or air guitaring! By the way some stereos may not reproduce all of the bass, for those that do, enjoy that nasty 48Hz, BOOM!!!

All the angels on the wire
Getting dizzy from the heights
Go carefully, carefully
Oh, airstream driver

She shoots but never misses
Stare down, passin’ traffic
Go carefully, carefully
Oh, airstream driver

I would return the favour
Oversleep the rapture
Go carefully, carefully
Oh, airstream driver

Your watermelon candy mouth
The penthouse at the sands
Go carefully, carefully
Oh, airstream driver

Olly Peacock.

can't stop listening to this song!! better than anything off the last album. the part at the eend is as good as the stuff i got hooked on in the late 90s early 2000s. will you guys be coming to california ( the mystic in particular)? we miss you and now that you are touching on your old roots we crave a show!! a rockin' show!! you know

Definitely agree with Stephen (also cool to see a fellow Sonoman; that Mystic show was definitely one of my favorites!). Sort of reminds me of a little In Our Gun fused with Split the Difference, but there's definitely some good "roots" Gomez in there : )

Love it. And while I would adore everything that you guys do (it goes with the territory of being a crazy rabid fan) this is a really, really great song. Can't wait for the new album. I'm expecting it to be frabulous!

This song is great and I think How We Operate was a great album too. This thing of going back to the roots? The great thing about Gomez is the deversity. 3 great singers and song writers and the backbone as solid as Olly and Blackie. Its all been the best and please never stop Gomez. Come back to St. Louis, MO soon... your show at Mississippi Nights was great hope you remember the fans here!

Cool song! Still trying to get "See the world" out my head but for some reason it keeps coming back. Can't wait for the new album to be released! Hope you play some gigs in London soon. All the best!

Love it! Sounds like In Our Gun era in some ways.. which is my favorite album of yours. Had to laugh at the lift of the drum part for Metallica's One in the middle.

You guys should try to hook up with the Super Furry Animals (they have a new album coming out as well) and play here:


I love seeing you guys in small clubs here in Seattle, but it would be nice to see you in the sun without having to drive all the way out to the gorge for Sasquatch.

I absolutely love this song!

Damn you. DAMN YOU!

I'm a Gomez lover since the first single but after a point I think you started to overdo.

Too many noises, too many effects.

This song is a wonderful one, especially the instrumental part at the end (but still far from the intense progressive grooves you used to do), but I think ruined by the effect applied on the voice.

You still make wonderful songs and music, yet you have to hide or overcomplicate your melodies. I appreciate when this is done through daring transitions and escalations, but often it seems you are just scared if a song is just beautifully "plain".

It's not a case that I LOVED Ian Ball solo album. It was kept simple and brilliant.

Now I'm also waiting a new album where I can hear Ben's voice fully and without having it also ragged or hidden behind effects. I hope Ben has good pieces in this new album.

You know, Ol, I'm so pleased to hear that. Brilliant work. You continue to amaze me.

I think it's a case of 'brace yourselves', my dears.

This song is AWESOME! My husband and I can't stop listening to it! We have missed you dearly! You need to come do a show in Minneapolis! We used to live in Utah and have seen you at liquid joe's and suede and we hope to see you out here in the Midwest!
