Tenderness: Vinyl LP

£16.99

Release date: 6 October, 2017

Blue Hawaii's Tenderness searches for the meaning of closeness in our highly-connected world. Central to the record is the contradictory power of technology: people are at once alienated and brought together by its use. With immediacy of communication we can feel close without ever having to be truly tender to each other.After taking a 4 year break from writing and producing with each other, Ra and Agor rekindled their creative fame in 2016, writing music about an unrequited relationship Ra was experiencing with someone mostly online, constantly battling these contradictory feelings of distance and closeness. As record fows from one song to the next with skits, phone calls, acoustic demos, real life samples and quiet left-turns, she discovers that happiness is derived not from others but from something immaterial within herself. She fnds validation without the need for the other—a valuable lesson whether in real or virtual reality.
