EDITORS’ NOTES

Blue Hawaii’s first full-length, Untogether, was a breathy, electro-pop meditation on distance and disconnection—an album that whispered in your ear about being a million miles away. Their second is a brighter—but just as tactile—affair, anchored by the soaring, Björk-like voice of Raphaelle Standell-Preston. It dials in classic, gospel-influenced house (“No One Like You”), hazy trip-hop (“Younger Heart”), and string-soaked ballads (“Do You Need Me?”) with a production style that makes even the album’s most stylish moments feel grounded and handmade.
