Blue Hawaii have been recording and releasing music for almost a decade. You would think it'd be clockwork by now, but their fourth record, "Open Reduction Internal Fixation", has proved to be anything but. Spanning genres as diverse as trance, acoustic, UK garage, trip-hop and house, it's core elements are lighthearted and groovy. But oddly, "Open Reduction Internal Fixation" was born out of unfortunate circumstance. The duo were scheduled to tour in Autumn '18 but plans changed suddenly when Agor smashed up his heel in Germany. Instead of the tour, he came back to Montreal for treatment - hence the title - "Open Reduction Internal Fixation", the foot surgery he received. Ra was going through her own challenges at this time, being on the heel end of a messy breakup - the kind where you almost get married and spend your life together only to fnd everything torched to ashes. Much like the surgery, that emotional rollercoaster also left her feeling torn open and fxated. The remedy: hit the club and make a record that makes you scream in joy at the speakers. Agor and Ra connected during their recovery periods, and through their different pains the tunes came together naturally, a healing through fun and friendship. Tied together with signature diva vocals, dreamy tones and liquid beats, "Open Reduction Internal Fixation" is the living proof of turning a bummer situation into a golden opportunity.
