Today Montreal-based electronic duo Blue Hawaii (Raphaelle ‘Ra’ Standell and Alexander ‘Agor’ Kerby) share the Kevan Funk directed video for ‘Do You Need Me‘.
“This video depicts the slow, almost meditative aspect of using one’s phone. The dichotomy of staying connected while alone is experience shared by a very diverse group of people regardless of age, race and even income. This video is shot so delicately; the often juxtaposed vignettes speak for themselves and are oddly soothing. Kevan really nailed this one!” says the duo.
Watch the immersive video for ‘Do You Need Me’ by Blue Hawaii below –
‘Do You Need Me‘ is from Tenderness (their first new album in 4 years) which was released in October of last year. Tenderness is a concept album which brings forth the challenges of handling relationships online. Maintaining closeness over distance and a need for more tenderness between each other – both in real and virtual life – are important themes in the album’s progression.
