Charlie Pinel and Sam Radseresht, who make up the electronic duo Glassio, became first acquainted with one-another while studying music production at NYU and being fatefully paired together to for a homework assignment one night. Starting off as a chore and quickly turning into a fruitful collaborative relationship, these fresh new artists have developed a playful and effervescent electronic sound that is packed with energy and reminiscent of groups such as Phoenix and Hot Chip.
Having just released their debut EP Poptism on February 17 via the Brooklyn-based label Baby's All Right, the synth-pop duo has been kind enough to offer up a remix of their track "If I was Your Boy" from the Canadian pair, Blue Hawaii.
Hailing from Montreal, Blue Hawaii consists of Raphaelle Standell-Preston (former band member of the group Braids) and Alex Cowan. Their debut LP Untogether received rave reviews from numerous media outlets and their bewitching strain of dance music is utterly original, abrupt, stripped down, emotional, and groovy. The remix flips the original, upbeat version of the track on it's head and reworks the track into a much dimmer and intimate affair. Streaked with sparse vocal hits, brandish synths and kept moving by its sharp array of percussive pulses.
