Blue Hawaii

A Braids offshoots' delicate, ethereal dance-electronic music has recently snuck up on me. on first listen it sounds like literally nothing, just washes of pastel colored sound and diffident, altered female vocals, but give it a listen or three and it starts to take hold, little shards of hard rhythm glinting out of gauzy drapings...I kinda like it.

Anyway the band is called Blue Hawaii, its two main partners are Raphaelle Standell-Preston (of Braids) and Alex Cowan, and their album #2, Untogether is coming early next year on Arbutus records.

Here is "In Two"
