about

- QMA 2012 (Qld Music Awards) Winners for the Blues / Roots Category.

Band of Frequencies QMA winning song ‘Golden’ offers a unique glimpse into the quintessential Sunny Coast lifestyle. Written in the ocean on a crisp winters afternoon during the annual sugarcane burn off, the lyrics glowingly reflect on maintaining an attitude of gratitude.

‘These days are Golden, these amazing moments just keep unfolding’.

Shannon’s husky vocals paint a picture seen only from the sea as the sun sets through the smoky haze and troubles melt away into the ether. The chorus breezes in like sunshine reassuring us that this Golden moment here and now is all we need to focus on. Everything else can wait…

Lifting the vibe, the bridge kicks in offering a window into the bands recording sessions that went down straight to tape at Blackbox studios. The guitar solo was recorded live in the original session and left only the vocals and swirling organ to be placed masterfully in the mix by Jeff Lovejoy in the overdub stages of the recording.

Golden
Lyrics by Shannon Sol Carroll

A piece of sugarcane ash sticks to my skin
As another piece falls into the ocean
Black ribbons fall twisting from a sweet golden cloud
As the sun now be setting through it well I find myself thinking aloud

These days are golden. These amazing moments just keep unfolding.
Well these days are golden, golden, golden. Let go of all I’m holding onto.

Yeah well I caught my reflection in a rock pool at low tide.
Just like the fish in there, well, nowhere to run. Nowhere to hide.
I lay in the stillness. I just drift and glide.
I’m feeling good things are coming and I just got to wait
And swim away with the rising tide.

These days are golden, golden, golden.
I let go of all I’m holding onto.
Yeah these days are golden, golden, golden.
These amazing moments just keep unfolding. Let them flow.

Yessah well moment to moment now I flow on to the next.
Well life is so simple please don’t make it complex
I fill my half full glass with a new context
Now it’s overflowing now with a meniscus convex.
Poetic licensees yes we rhyme with ease,
Opening doors of perception ‘cause you know we got the keys universal
In the moment no rehearsal these thoughts on the airwaves like seed dispersal.
Fly, fly on. Fly on. Fly, fly on. Fly on.

These days are golden, golden, golden.
I just let go of all I’m holding onto. Yeah hey.
Well these days are golden, golden, golden.
These amazing moments just keep unfolding.
