Gambles – Winter

Matthew Daniel Siskin began writing songs as Gambles in August 2012 with no goal or motive other than the past few years needed addressing; things that had gone unsaid for too long needed saying. Gambles is people & music; boiled down, pressed dry, sliced thin, and left to dry. Although It’s clear for Matthew, Gambles is also everything, a life-saving perspective on events demanding to be acknowledged, registered, declared and, when ready, left. Proselytized by Life or Death PR (Frank Ocean, Best Coast, Little Dragon), booked by High Road Touring, Gambles has drawn the attention of Pitchfork, The Fader, Elle, Spin, Stereogum and more, all before having officially released music. “Far From Your Arms” the highly anticipated EP is the bold lead into the full length album debut coming Fall 2013. Gambles will tour stateside and in the UK through the remainder of the year.

Gambles – Winter

Gambles – Winter Lyrics:
when you come to find a lover
in the shadow of another
you’ll know

when you do what was right
when you do what was wanted
you’ll know

when you wake to find her
and you do not recognize her
you’ll know

when you take from your body
like a puzzle or a hunter
you’ll know

when your lover is beside you
but your heart will not stick by two
you’ll know

when you’re screaming from a tower
but your eyes are never with you
you’ll know

when you come to find a lover
in the shadow of another
you’ll know

when you do what they wanted
when you do what was right
you’ll know.
