Bio

Oh Forest Shore is the longstanding musical project of Far North Queensland’s singer/songwriter/producer Mason Rowley.

Golden Eyes is a sensitive yet ambitious love letter written from the singer / songwriter Mason, to a woman he’ll never have the pleasure of meeting, but wish he could. A quick lock of eyes from across the room between two bodies, space almost still, both wanting to know more, but for whatever reason after what felt like an eternity, the moment ends and it’s over. Gone. The song explores the mysteries of the woman with an electric dance rhythm section, 80s melodic guitar riffs and huge dazzling synths throughout, while lyrically the song tries to fill in some of the blanks of the evening and attempts to describe what may have happened IF they had ever had a chance to meet. It’s undoubtedly a track to turn up to full and belt out a serious dance session.

Gotta show some love to this track. It's so warmly produced and the dudes really make the most of the running time, using it as a reason to stretch out and indulge their electronic inklings.

This is a really nice debut offering. I love the guitar kicking in at 00:47, the riff ~kinda~ reminds me of "A Community Service Announcement" by Jonathan Boulet. Who is the lovely lass featuring? She has a stellar voice. Overall very catchy stuff and congrats on the GTM slot!
