Try to Be by Blue Hawaii from the album “Untogether”.
I heard this track yesterday on Q with Jian Ghomeshi (for those of you who aren’t Canadian and who don’t listen to cool radio) this is an amazing show on CBC Radio 1 and in the US on Public Radio International. It’s also on Sirius XM on channel 169. It’s such a great show. He interviews a variety of artists (actors, authors, singers) but also discusses current affairs.
Anyway, I instantly loved this track. It’s ethereal and haunting and beautiful and yet uplifting and strong. I downloaded the entire album. Blue Hawaii is an electronic music duo based in Montreal. They remind me of Jane Siberry and a little bit of Kate Bush. And they have a bit of a retro sound too.
This post won’t get many notes, but whatever, I wanted to share this gorgeous track. :)
If I was still in University with my radio show I would have played the heck out of this album. Have a great day! xo jojo
