about

Silver is precious! Silver sparkles! Silver shines!

Silver also happens to be the third color in the ever-developing rainbow tapestry being woven by GW4. Simple in execution, yet mercurial and mature. GW4 glides through an electronic world that is never quite what it seems.

Unique and ever-evolving the 3rd GW4 Single shines in unexpected ways:

The opener "Silver" is beautiful, nostalgic, and laced with hints of beautiful things to come.
We live in a time where "Truth" is the rarest of currencies, but - truth is deliverance and so is this gorgeous track. Like beautiful calligraphy it is simple, yet incredibly refined.
"Think About a Lie" worms it's way into your brain and triggers an involuntary yet pleasant head bobbing sensation. Highly recommended!
The consciously stoic, almost melancholic Opportunity is the perfect track to close this Ep on a note of reflection and yearning


GW4 continues to explore the gap between sounds and colors. Stay tuned!

Track Name: Silver [Confirmation Granted Mix]
Silver
Reflected there in silver
Projecting how I show up in the world
I’m glad this has occurred
So I can see how I appear to you

Show it to me silver
Show me how to be a better friend
Better than I’ve been
So I can see things so much clearer

How far can I fly
When I don’t even try?
I’m held back by who I see here in laced in silver

How far will I go?
Where I don’t even know
I hope my image holds up in the silver
In the mirror

Dancing in the mirror
Reflected by the silver in my eye
I don’t even have to try
The light begets the subject present

Laughing at the image
Reflected in the silver in my eye
I’m glad to have some time
To see the child that I could be and am
Track Name: Truth [Cold Trumpet Mix]
Truth

If I could say for sure
That I had the cure
I think I would be an honest man

If I could turn back time
I would change my crime
I think I would be an honest man

You can say it with deliberation
You can say it with some hesitation
Truth, Truth is deliverance

You can say it cause you like the concept
You can say it when you know the first step

Truth, Truth is deliverance

If I think I could go
I’d do it for sure
I’d do it to be an honest man

If there was still a way
I’d do it today
I think I would be an honest man

You can say it with deliberation
You can say it with some hesitation
Truth, Truth is deliverance

You can say it when you like the concept
You can say it when you know the first step

Truth, Truth is deliverance

If I could say for sure that I had the cure
I think I would be an honest man.
Track Name: Think About A Lie [Greyscape Extended Mix]
Think About A Lie

You got me in the moment
Delivered me from torment
Speak to me about this
What about this?
What about this?

You took my invitation
You know the destination
Speak to me about this
What about this?
What about this?

The night is young
We could think about a lie
We could think about a lie to tell ourselves

Think about a lie
Think about a lie
Think about a lie to tell ourselves

We had some reservations
Met with hesitation
Tell me what we're going to do
What we're going to do
What about this?

I left with all my moments
Giving me the torments
Whatcha gonna say here?
What about this?
What about this?
Track Name: Opportunity (Strange Stuff Mix)
Opportunity

You never liked this game, You played it anyway
I turned my back again, you made it easy for me

Still, the little things go by and I can wait
and see which ones come next,
I'll tell you when you see

I had an opportunity,
I thought that it would work
It didn't go as planned
So I kept it to myself

I had an opportunity
I thought that it was mine
I got a little lost
And moved in to myself

You never thought this way
You let it come in to play
A new perspective chose
I made it easy for you

Time goes by and we think about the moments
Where the good times start and less about the torment
The people we love and warm faces from our memory
If you think for a moment you'll get caught up in the revelry

For time joy always trumps the darkness
If your heart's in it, and not about the nonsense
The world we live in is an interesting place...
