Following 2020’s Chasing the Golden Hour Pt. 3 and 2021’s Rainbow Brain, GRiZ is back with yet another stunning album. A vibrant collection of playful major key synth-work and brass melodies, Chasing The Golden Hour, Pt. 4 showcases GRiZ’s versatility as well as his softer, melodic side across nine dynamic tracks.
The LP opens with “Mystik Dub,” as GRiZ lays the groundwork for a funk-filled exploration into effervescent soundscapes before flowing into the bubbly, indie-electronica single, “Your Light.” Next is “Keep Bouncin’,” a groovy standout track that shines with the artist’s signature saxophone solo. GRiZ enlisted the help of hip-hop collaborator ProbCause and vocalist Chrishira Perrier for “Airplane Mode,” marking the only features on the LP.
“Carry On” displays a euphoric soundscape that gently rolls into the dreamy downtempo grooves of “Gooey.” GRiZ continues to hone his signature funk sound with “On a High” and “Your Mind” before concluding with the mesmerizing slow-burner “Sundown.” Chasing The Golden Hour 4 is a beautiful display of GRiZ’s versatility as a producer and a worthy follow up to his recent works.
“I wanted to recreate the carefree good vibes you feel when it’s just about sunset on the perfect summer evening and everything is the most beautiful shimmering tint of gold. Chasing The Golden Hour is that magical moment, it is the cool breeze against your back, it is sweet summer swagger in music form.”-GRiZ
