it's been a while but now gomez are back! this is the first single from their new album 'in our gun.' while the song is clearly gomez they do seem to have stepped away from their singalong bluesrock style in favour of a less blues, more rock direction; the result is the fantastic single shot shot, believe me this cd is worth buying if just to check out the b-sides.

OK, ignore the fact that the intro sounds just a little like that of another band ending head, starting radio. Who cares! It's fantasitc and well frankly, I think Gomez being away for 2 years has been worth it. "Shot Shot" shows a more directional approach by the lads. If you've heard either of the 2 albums by the band or the Machismo Ep you'll already know Gomez are one of the most interesting bands of our time. Percussion. electronic, good old bit of guitar, jazz, spanish influence.... theres everything in there. Gomez have the ability to go that little bit deeper. If Shot Shot and the other tracks on the single are anything to go by,the album Shot gun is going to blow you away!
