Um... hell yes? Of all the things to come out of the chillwave blogosphere of old, 2010's Blooming Summer was the best. Blue Hawaii are the electronic sister band of Braids and together the duo have gone on to make cold, disassociating dance music; on their first record, though, they made distraught, aching tunes the likes of their fleeting genre had never known. Blooming Summer is a short little masterpiece of visceral heartbreak and bubbling synthwork.
Blue Hawaii are back after a 4-year hiatus. Tenderness sees Ra and Agor re-combining to write songs about unreciprocated love, musing on relationships conducted via the internet -- with all the implicit and explicit, unreal / false sense of intimacy -- and the contradictions inherent in the power and efficacy of technology in 2017. The record moves smoothly through skits, songs, samples of phone calls and demos. LP / CD on Arbutus Records.
