Close your eyes while you let the colorful sounds of Versus Game spread throughout your bloodstream. Imagine the colors they create as your body starts to sway to the house and disco sound that Alexander Kirby produces. Blue Hawaii seamlessly creates a world for you to get lost in as singer, Raphaelle Standell-Preston, uses the tenderness of her voice to sing lyrics about love in the digital age.

Through the catchy beats and diary-style lyrics, Tenderness is an album that warmly pulls at your heart strings. Infused with house and disco, the duo also creates a sound that bridges the gap between pop and club music. From start to finish, Tenderness is an album you need to sit down and listen to in full in order to fully grasp the world that Blue Hawaii creates. Listening to this album is like lighting and blowing out a scented candle: The dance floor beats spark a flame that lights up each song and illuminates beautiful colors around the room. But once you blow out the flame, you are left with the pleasant interludes, stripped down tracks and honest lyrics that surround you with a warm and lovely scent. It’s an album that ignites all of your senses and leaves you wanting more.
