Blue Hawaii, All the Things.

From All That Blue to All the Things, the return of Blue Hawaii is all kinds of captivating. The latter track – the latest to come from the Canadian duo’s forthcoming Open Reduction Internal Fixation full-length – recalls Sweet Female Attitude, among many another prominent UK garage proponent, as the central lyric: “All the things you said keep going through my head/ Like a record spinning round right to the end” replays so regularly that it’s almost as though it were lodged deep within a locked groove. The grooves themselves are thoroughly worth the locking into, while its heavily rotated lyrical content lends credence to its UKGeneses. Genuinely engaging stuff.

Open Reduction Internal Fixation is available from October 11th via Arbutus Records, while Blue Hawaii play Corsica Studios on December 12th.
