Blooming Summer came and lifted this cloudy Sunday thanks to a tweet-lead from brother GOBBLE GOBBLE. Montreal’s Blue Hawaii describe their sound as “beach storm & morning after” and that fits, as does the airy artwork. Arbutus Records has the full and free download.
They recently stripped down “Castle Of Clouds” for nomag and prefaced it with:
“At the beginning, this song was an upbeat computer song, with midi sounds. […] It was originally super dancy, and we took it apart, and it became really ambient and slow. […] We went to Guatemala for two months together, and we got samples of kids playing soccer and fireworks, and we put tons of reverb and delay on those, and compressed the whole song. Yesterday, we got excited that “Felix wants us to do this acoustic thing!” so we came up with this arrangement.”
