about

Will Gant Providence, Rhode Island

Like a trip to your weird relative’s unfinished basement, the music of Will Gant feels more curious than comfortable. The songwriter layers untamed vibrato over an electrified banjo, crafting a colorful, angular landscape of country twang and east coast art rock. Despite the dissonance, the songs’ warmth reveal a genuine love of bedroom recording. ... more

Track Name: Summer Garbage
spent my summer in the dirt
not so hard I thought I'd work
spent my summer in the mud
not sure how it'd get much worse

not sure how it'd get much better
he told me nothing lasts forever
so limit the ways to keep it together
keep track of time July, August, September

summer garbage [x4]
summer garbage
smells like trash
deep in the summer time

due for another hell of a day
hot and humid it's a scorcher today
so ferment the trash in the alleyway
in a crusty bucket full of rust, decay

stir it together in a pit full of clay
yeah, it's a vernal pool of filth and waste
combine the mix 'till it's a steaming paste
then shape it into bricks and build a place to stay

summer garbage [x4]
summer garbage
smells like trash
deep in the summer time
Track Name: End of Bread
you're just the end of bread
you are the heel that gets left for dead
live life on the edge
but to the birds you shall be fed
put hair onto my chest
least that's what grandpa said
fuck what grandpa said
like the middle slice the best

walk into the kitchen just the other day
stomach making noise I was hungry
first place I look inside the pantry
I was looking for a grilled cheese!

reach into the cupboard pull the bread bag
bag is nearly empty there's just one left
little bit moldy and crusty
it was the end of bread

you're just the end of bread
you are the heel that gets left for dead
live life on the edge
but to the birds you shall be fed
puts hair onto my chest
least that's what my grandpa said
Track Name: Stick With You
let me say it plain and simple
yeah I love you
yeah I do
and if you love me too
well then it's true
and if you want me to
I'll stick with you

My wire fence may be rusted through
yeah my barbs
they're a bit dull
but you keep me sharp
I'll be good as new
as long as you
stick with me

no alibi excuse me from you
yeah I'm stuck
stuck like glue
it's a ball and chain
without a key
won't you lock me away
stick with me

if you stick with me
I buy you
a diamond ring
I build you a house
you could be free
you stick with me
I'll stick with you
Track Name: Big Wheel
wrote the book
but I never read it
yeah turn the page
then forget it

term and condition
of daily life
well it's razor thin
and it's filled with light

turkish delight

spin the wheel with one hand free
to pick the ripe ones buried deep
shave them down to find the seed
with which to pluck and play the string

the string is taught it's caught between
a kite and a hole too far to see
an abstract vacuum sparkling clean
forever turning constantly

you know I need a great escape
big wheel turns and can't keep pace
stuck in gutter cannot shake
turn towards me, show your face

I'll show you the light
I'll show you the love

pack your bag
with hyper volume
unwind the lines
that stretch beyond you

you're out of line
and out of pocket
so let's wrap it up
time ain't stopping

yeah the clock keeps spinning
wheels keep rotating

spin the wheel with one hand free
to pick the ripe ones buried deep
shave them down to find the seed
with which to pluck and play the string

the string is taught it's caught between
a kite and a hole too far to see
an abstract vacuum sparkling clean
forever turning constantly

you know I need a great escape
big wheel turns and can't keep pace
stuck in gutter just can't shake
turn towards me, show your face

I'll show you the light
Track Name: Half Light
Make you disappear
without any smoke and mirror
vanish into thin air without a trace
cut you in half
find the right side of your brain
have not yet left to see you again

For each half that is good
I find three halves that are bad
four halves make a double that's a fact
a hard working half
isn't necessarily good
bad half works hard just the same

don't think I forgot
I already had my shot
in the dark
of the dawn
of the day

it's a new day

it's pleasure having not yet met you
cannot wait to reconnect you
catch up for the first time at the reunion
flip a coin under the pavilion
sterilize the conversation
truth is I have to get into trouble to know who I am

fireworks in South Dakota
pyrotechnic orange soda
burning half light on night stained eyes
that have not yet seen behind the curtain
what is hidden I can't be certain
I hope you are dancing to endless music

don't think I forgot
I already had my shot
in the dark
of the dawn
of the day
[x2]

it's a new day
it's gonna be OK
