For Girls in Hawaii take the most precious of all artist’s rights: the right to take their time. It is therefore step by step their whole lives that they will document in their music. The candor of their beginnings (From Here to there, 2003). Then, entering adulthood, discouragement from the task at hand, the urge to stop or simply flee (Plan Your Escape, 2008). And finally, injustice. The death of Denis, the drummer, one evening in May. And strength as it slowly returns. That says, "You are alive! And you alone can make sense of all this "(Everest, 2013).
Four long years after Everest, here finally is Nocturne. The most "agile" album, the most "easy to write and get down" according to the group. An artistic flick of the wrist . Made in the style of a Jackson Pollock canvas. A record that Antoine and Lionel each wrote separately "without too many instructions". Apart from some keywords exchanged to circumscribe the subject: hypnosis, the jungle, Rousseau's naive paintings too. "Targeting the work in a pictorial way avoids infinite discussions," they explain. Unlike Everest, the fruit of a long and painful reflection necessary to any resurrection record, Nocturne almost ‘created itself’.
