“Forest Boys” enamors with a lushly entrancing vein of folk and pop. The track is a collaboration from Box (a singer/songwriter based out of Torrance, CA) and Jack Winters, whose guitar work throughout lends atmospheric, dreamy qualities. The heart-tugging guitars and slight orchestral backing provide an enchanting feeling in the intro, paving way for the serenely enjoyable vocals. An eerie melodic turn around 02:30 diversifies with quality results, with guitars and synths additions continuing to dazzle thereafter. “Forest Boys” is a hypnotic success from Box and Jack Winters.
Per the artist, the track is described as: “Nostalgic sounds about a childhood in Japan representing bliss and obliviousness and facing the present reality of adulthood.”
