TUNE Girls In Hawaii - Misses
Artist: GIRLS IN HAWAII
Impact Date: 17th June 2013
Belgian quintet, Girls In Hawaii, have announced details of two shows at this year's Great Escape Festival in Brighton. This will be the band's first time at The Great Escape and they're set to mark this with the release of their new EP, 'Misses', via the legendary French label, Naive (M83, John & Jehn). The official video for the EP's title track is available on YouTube ( www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCuCXoZgNe4 ), and full listings for their Great Escape performances are as follows:
Saturday 18th May @ The Queens, 1-3 King’s Road, Brighton: 2:30pm (w/ Christine & The Queens and Concrete Knives)
Saturday 18th May @ Brighthelm, North Road, Brighton: 10:30pm (w/ Watsky and Young Fathers)
Having released two albums ('From Here To There' in 2003 and 'Plan Your Escape' in 2008) Girls In Hawaii took a break in 2010 after an unexpected tragedy hit the group. Following a couple of years silence the band made their live comeback in 2012 at Deep in the Woods Festival (Belgium). Happy with their live reunion, the band then decided to try recording together again and headed to the outskirts of Paris where they recorded a new album in three sessions. Produced by the Grammy Award winning Tchad Blake (The Black Keys, Gomez), this new album will be released later in 2013. Drawing comparisons to the likes of Grandaddy and dEUS for their delicate and dreamy electronic indie, the gently meandering 'Misses' marks the start of an exciting new chapter in Girls in Hawaii’s history.
Following The Great Escape, Girls In Hawaii will play a number of festivals throughout Europe this summer, including Montreux Jazz Festival (Switzerland) and Pukkelpop (Belgium).
