New Treat #142: Blue Hawaii

Arbutus Records is home to Grimes and TOPS, two of my favourite artists of this year. It is also home to today’s New Treat Blue Hawaii. One half of the duo is singer Raphaelle Standell-Preston who is also the lead singer in BRAIDS, the other half is her real-life boyfriend and producer Alexander Cowan. Blue Hawaii is a more experimental, electronic, and chlllwave side project for Raphaelle.. The band, who are based in Montreal, are a bit on and off. Their first record was released in 2010, entitled Blooming Summer. The record was inspired by new love and travelling for months across Central America.

They have an upcoming second record entitled Untogether which I guess will be out in the new year sometime. You can listen to two tracks from that album ‘In Two’ and ‘In Two II’ at the moment on Bandcamp.
