mp3 premiere: Blue Hawaii – Get Happy / Get Happier


(๑ ऀืົཽ₍₍ළ₎₎ ऀืົཽ)✧ 'Get Happy' is a song we recorded one day in January 2014 but laid to rest as we got lost in the commotion of touring and moving to separate cities.

Montreal duo Blue Hawaii drop a beautifully conflicted new jam/mantra ahead of their CMJ dates: Listen to + download the hypnotic "Get Happy", along with its more frantic, double-time counterpart, below. Raph and Agor bring their amazing live show to NYC this week for CMJ, check those dates after the jump...
