Blue Hawaii "Try to Be"

Blue Hawaii 'Try to Be'
Montreal experimental pop duo Blue Hawaii may have bounced the release date of their Untogether LP from today (January 22) to early March, but at least we have the sublime soundscape "Try to Be" to tide us over until then.

The track's finger-picked acoustic guitar melodies and tapestry of tremolo-laden back-ups support singer Raphaelle Standell-Preston's soft and personal inward analysis ("Never tired or in distress / It's what I'm supposed to be, what I try to be"). You can sample the tender electro-acoustic exploration below.

As previously reported, Untogether drops March 5 through Arbutus Records.
