Two years after Tenderness, Berlin based duo Blue Hawaii (Braids member Raphaelle “Ra” Standell-Preston and Alex “Agor” Kerby) have released a new album called Open Reduction Internal Fixation in 2019. Now they have announced the release of a new mixtape called Under 1 House which will be out on September 25th via Arbutus Records. “I Felt Love” is the first excerpt. Watch the official video below.
The track captures the tribulations of a distanced romance in these strange times. In their own words; “I Felt Love” describes the difficulty of trying to communicate over the phone with a lover, in an airport drowned out by the loud background noise. It has a special context in the post-corona world, where we have had the opportunity to tune out distractions, dig deeper, and discover what is important to us.
The arrangement features a relentless electro baseline with dubby breaks driving forward a soothing piano/synth progression.”
