Eerder kregen ze voor hun vorige plaat 'Dream All Over' al 8,1 door het hippe Amerikaanse blog Pitchfork. Nu roepen ze hun nieuwe single uit tot 'Best New Track'
"Considering the relative chaos of its subject matter, it's perfect that Gun Outfit wrap "Expansion Pact" in warm, featherlight electric guitar. As is often the case with this L.A. rock band, the song—off the upcoming Two Way Player EP, which follows 2015's excellent Dream All Over—is gentle but firm. On "Expansion Pact," guitarist Dylan Sharp uses his melodically dour voice to circle feelings of weakness and discomfort. At a point, he sings about how everyone handles "the stranger at the door" differently. When life becomes uncertain, suddenly everything becomes a scramble to find the right coping mechanism, and maybe there is a reprieve right inside this song. Gun Outfit operate so well in this lane, offering a quietly beautiful backdrop for an emotionally scattered moment. Even better, they're completely self-aware. "And now I can't believe myself when the soloing begins," Sharp sings, right before he hits a guitar solo."
