Screen Shot 2019-08-16 at 10.02.05 PM

Montreal duo Blue Hawaii return with a dreamy deep house anthem, taken from their new album Open Reduction Internal Fixation, coming this fall on Arbutus. "All That Blue" has a heavy late '80s / early '90s vibe, as Ra Standell-Preston takes a glorious house-diva turn over the track's pulsing beat, with that smoky sax and haunting vocoder accoutrement lifting the track into the rafters of the club...
