We got this track via e-mail last week and have been playing it non-stop ever since. Heavy Hawaii hail from San Diego and have certainly soaked up the sun and the surf in this harmony drenched, hazy gem of a song, but they have also managed to add a deliciously dark undercurrent. It is a bit like an illicit visit to an old time carnival – full of the smell of greasepaint, sawdust and woodsmoke and populated by dark, fantastic characters and their fantastic promises.
In fact, for once, the single line description of the song that we got is perfect: “It’s a song that would be right at home on the soundtrack to Grease, if Sandy and Danny were zombies with a mild dependence on prescription narcotics”.
Limited to 1,000 colored vinyl records, the six track 12″ EP HH will be available on September 28th on Art Fag Recordings. Teen Angel is the first single from it. Enjoy.
