In this song, there is a certain nonchalance in David that I really like. An exceptional lightness, as if a friend took you by the hand and said "come on, who cares, let's have some fun".

We have all just gone through a period that could not be more negative. We are finally starting to see the tunnel light at last and we all need to release the pressure and find everything that we have been missing for almost 18 months.

As David told us "It's a song which I hope people will get stuck in their heads, and enjoy at face value. But if they look deeper, they'll find it's maybe not as pretty as it sounds". Exactly! There is a hidden message in this song. Can you find it?

Anyway, it seems that "Boomshot" is the official anthem of our newfound freedom! In any case, it's a good start. The song had the effect of a bomb on us. We immediately wanted to leave our chair to dance. And you are probably going to do the same. Come on, let's release the pressure, turn up the volume, and let go completely, at least for the next four minutes, if not, like us, you are fans of the replay button.

For us, this little gem of optimism could go a long way with its Italian trumpets. No doubt.

Added to our Main Spotify Playlist, our "Uplifting Vibes" playlist, and played daily on Indie Music Center's Radio.

Lyrics

I need a boomshot (x4)

It’s the cataclysmic sirens that revolve inside your head

It is the sound of everything that you consigned to being dead

All the seizures of your hope

And all the pain you always grope

Can take the elementary pop-psycho that helps you not to cope

It is the gloom, the doom that seeps out of your breath

It is the doom, the gloom of all the words unsaid

There is a place to chase residing in your soul

But all the complicated contexts form a sorrow that you hold.

I need boomshot (x4)

Boomshot, I’ve been waiting, I’ve been waiting for so long (x2)

It’s the agonising prayer to be released from every thought

Every thought reveals the anguish of a past you haven’t fought

It’s your past that pushes you up to a hope you can’t abort

Ya know, the future is the story of the pain that you exhort

Is it the doom that you caress inside your head?

Is it the gloom that will define a life unled

There is a world unlearned obscured within your soul

By all the contexts that will bury all the nows that we extol

I need a boomshot (x4)

Boomshot, I’ve been waiting, I’ve been waiting for so long (x2)

Boomshot, I’ve been waiting, I’ve been waiting for so long (x2)

I need a boomshot (repeat to finish)
