What I know about Hawaiian music can be summed up in two bullet points:
Man, the Japanese are crazy. And awesome. And obsessed with Devo. And video games. Okay, I know this does not describe everyone from Japan, but it seems Polysics fits all four bills. And though in their own compositions they come off as unique, this cover is pretty faithful to the original. Well, if Shaw, DeYoung & Co. used more vocal effects and didn't take themselves so damned seriously. I mean, I was only about 11 when they released the Kilroy Was Here albumwhich I, of course, have on vinyland the "Mr. Roboto" video hit MTV, and even I knew that the little dystopia concept they'd created was not only uncool, but also quite possibly the lamest thing ever.
