Rockaway – “Hawaii” (Feat. Kristin Kontrol) (Stereogum Premiere)

Adam Russell used to play bass for White Rabbits. Now he’s teamed up with Ally Pekins under the name Rockaway, and the project’s first single features Dee Dee Penny from Dum Dum Girls under her new Kristin Kontrol guise. Built on cheery lo-fi guitars and cascading layers of sighing vocals, the pleasant midtempo bop “Hawaii” is the kind of skewed retro vision that might happen if Ariel Pink teamed up with Yo La Tengo.
