Girls In Hawaii will release their new album, 'Everest', on Naïve Records on September 16th 2013. The Belgian sextet's first full release in the UK, the album will be preceded by a single, 'Not Dead', on August 12th.
Girls In Hawaii previously released two albums ('From Here To There' in 2003 and 'Plan Your Escape' in 2008), to not inconsiderable acclaim, in central Europe, but the tragic loss of drummer Denis Wielemans in a car accident in 2010 led them to take an extended break. After a couple of years' silence, the band tentatively regrouped for a live show in 2012 at the Deep in the Woods Festival (Belgium) and, fired up with their live reunion, Girls In Hawaii set upon recording together again. They headed to an ancient Manoir near Paris, where they recorded a new album in three sessions and handed it over to the Grammy-winning producer Tchad Blake (The Black Keys, Gomez) this spring.
Drawing comparisons to the likes of Grandaddy and dEUS for their delicate and dreamy electronic indie, gently meandering single, 'Misses', marked the start of an exciting new chapter in Girls in Hawaii's history and was released online to coincide with the band's UK appearances at The Great Escape in May. The new single, 'Not Dead', gives a further glimpse into this quite magical album.
