The pure bubblegum joy on Opossom’s debut is cavity-inducing, staggering, but the ingenuity and vision are equally powerful.

From its quick runtime (30 minutes) to its psychedelic pop affinities, this is one of the year’s most refreshing albums of any genre.

Opossom haven’t created anything particularly grand or unique here, but overall Electric Hawaii is one of the most easily replayable albums to be released this year.

Electric Hawaii not only sounds miles away from UMO’s lo-fi indie-rock, but it’s also one of the most fascinating debut albums of the year.

Under The Radar
Under The Radar

This debut album plays like the aural equivalent of a relentlessly upbeat pal who wants nothing more than to sit next to you and radiate, and whether or not their enthusiasm fully rubs off by the end of the disc, the likable vibe lingers.

Electric Hawaii is an album that's easier to bop your head to while idly imagining the technology commercial it could soundtrack than it is to engage with.

It's a real shame that an album that starts so promisingly loses its way so dramatically.

No Ripcord
No Ripcord

The dreamy cues and spacious production is all present, but it lacks the soul of psychedelia.

There are ways to manage dynamics from soft to chaotic, but there is much to be desired in managing the extremes on Electric Hawaii.
