Blue Hawaii

Blue Hawaii - Try To Be
Blue Hawaii - Sierra Lift

Mysterious Montréaler duo Blue Hawaii showcases some seriously sublime production chops and couples chilly electronic bits 'n' pieces with glitchy, pitch-shifted vocal melodies and threads of wispy atmospherics on the seemingly sparse yet complex and highly textured Untogether debut full-length. Think downtempo and minimally structured tracks with loops and subtle sounds and synth fragments spread throughout. Um, also, Raphaelle sings full-time in Braids, if that matters to you at all.

Untogether will be released on March 5th, via Arbutus Records
