Rock outfit God’s Gift recently dropped the single Call Me Bad, which is lifted from their upcoming album. Wearing their influences on their sleeves, God’s Gift start the track with a tasty guitar riff before gravelly vocals join in, and the drums kick in, combining together at a sleazy pace.
The vocals reek of a rock dive bar, delivered with a swagger and honesty only rock and roll can conjure.
And so far honest if the best way to describe Call Me Bad. It’s a regulation-style rock number that does little wrong, but you can sense God’s Gift need to stamp their own DNA more on their music.
Around 2.20 it arrives in the form of a wicked guitar solo that restores a bit of mongrel. It carries through to the back end of the track, which is punctuated by mini solos and chuggs along at a better pace, before a full and boisterous closing section carries the song to a rocking conclusion.
God’s Gift have all the right ingredients there to rock the fuck out, they just need to find that next gear to complete the puzzle.
