Girls in Hawaii is a Belgian indie pop band. In 2000, Antoine Wielemans and Lionel Vancauwenberghe began recording songs on an 8 track-recorder, and a few months later they formed the band by recruiting their brothers: Denis Wielemans and Brice Vancauwenberghe,
and two friends: Christophe Léonard and Daniel Offermann.
Girls in Hawaii's first release was Found in the Ground: The Winter EP in early 2003, after which the band toured through Belgium and France. In the meantime, they started recording
what would become their first LP.
From Here To There was released in November 2003 in Belgium and in early 2004 in the rest of Europe. It was well-received across Europe, where the band went on a promotional tour, through Belgium, France, Italy,
Germany and Spain. The record was later released in Japan, and in October 2005 China Shop Music released it in the United States. The band did a short tour on the West Coast of the USA in April 2006.
Their second full-length album, Plan Your Escape,
released in February 2008 in Europe, is more complex and eclectic than the previous one and contains twelve songs, among them, the first single This Farm Will End Up in Fire. In 2010 a tragedy happened and 28 years old drummer Denis Wielemans died
in a car accident in Brussels.
Their third album, Everest, was released in September 2013. The first EP is called Misses and their second single, Not Dead. In the summer of 2014, they
released the third EP, called Refuge.
