Gomes has just announced the release of his new single, “Come Down” from his forthcoming album, “Peace, Love & Loud Guitars”.
“Come Down” begins with a steady beat and a soulful vocal melody that instantly grabs you. The band kicks in with a tight bluesy riff that’s full of aggressive rock n’ roll attitude. The opening lyrics “Come down from heaven B.B. King/Cause this kingdom has no king” get right to story Gomes is telling; a lifelong blues fanatic who misses his hero. The music has a solid rhythm throughout with the rock solid bass and drums backing up the razor sharp guitar leads. The structure follows a classic blues melody while also modernizing the framework and creating a unique song. The guitar leads show Gomes’s technical skills and powerhouse energy. All the while the song never loses its soulful heart and sentimental message.
