To celebrate their appearance at this week’s 981Heritage “Son Estrella Galicia” festival in London, Montreal duo Blue Hawaii have lined up the next in our mix series.
‘‘We’re very excited to play with our good friends in Austra,” says Alex “Agor” Cowan from the band, “and I changed a couple songs to make it pretty fun, loose. There’s an edit of Ace of Base…Ra and I haven’t seen each other in months so it’s gonna be great to play together again!’‘
