Gomez's infectious blend of bluesy wails, pop-rock harmonies and airtight songwriting has won the band critical acclaim and commercial success, making it one of the biggest and best U.K. bands to emerge in recent years. Click the link above to hear Gomez perform live in concert from WXPN and World Café Live in Philadelphia.

Winner of the 1998 Mercury Music Prize for Best Album, beating out the more established likes of Massive Attack and The Verve, Gomez has gone on to get tighter and more confident while slowly building a U.S. fan base. The band's sixth studio album, A New Tide, finds Gomez returning to its freewheeling and psychedelic sound, with songs ranging from solid rock to cool, rhythmic exchanges to bluesy melodies. Imaginative and eclectic, it combines hefty rock beats with pop choruses and hints of country.
