With an already established name with their own Lo-Fi, Post-Punk infused instrumentation and retro synth and guitar lines, Go Hawaii’s latest album ‘Tresspass’ sees them shift between Dream-Pop and introspective Indie, with driving beats in full force. Their sound is infinitely sunny and easygoing, along with distant, reflective vocal lines, as the LP introduces stripped-back, unheard tunes as well as more of Go Hawaii’s characteristic sound. The album’s centerpiece, ‘Dolphin’s Touch,’ combines the duo’s signature faraway vocals with the present, melodic guitars to create an Indie classic. Slowly building instrumentation through the verses to a memorable chorus filled with their distinctive discordant, bell-like noises, the album comes to a magnificent conclusion.
Talking about the album, Go Hawaii share: “Trespass is a collection of songs we wrote in the past two years, so they are very different from each other. We explored different genres, but the intention was always to give voice to our spirit and emotions.”
By using bedroom and dream pop, Go Hawaii mean to convey feelings into music and reach far-flung corners of the world every day, and they’ve been successful thus far. Listen to ‘Tresspass’, out now.
