The Saxophones - Aloha / Just You
“Aloha,” is a lush and melancholy new single from husband and wife duo The Saxophones, that follows on from the sold out debut 7” EP “If You’re On The Water” released earlier this year, which garnered plays on BBC 6 Music from Cerys Matthews, Jarvis Cocker, Tom Ravenscroft amongst others.
As with “If You’re On The Water,” “Aloha” was engineered and produced by Cameron Spies (Radiation City) over two summer weeks in Portland, Oregon and largely recorded on an Otari MX-70 one-inch tape machine. The song features Alexi Erenkov on guitar, vocals, saxophone, and Crumar synthesizer; his wife, Alison Alderdice, on percussion and vocals; and his long-time friend and collaborator, Richard Laws, on bass and vibraphone.
“Aloha” is largely a reflection on the ebb and flow of personal growth, escapism, and the repair of a relationship. While the verses drift between intimate vignettes of progress, stagnation, and obstinacy, the chorus engulfs the listener in a state of self-conscious exotica, and ultimately reveals that on the quest for self knowledge, the path has been lost.
