Malmo’s much-praised quartet of Caroline Landahl, Måns Leonartsson, Adam Agace and Lukas Thomasson release two glorious new tracks hot on the heels of ‘Siesta’, their excellent second album of last year on Fire Records.
“Swoony Swedish indie-pop.” Record Collector
“Too noisy to be indie pop, too sweet to be post punk.” Clash
‘Four Tries Down’ and ‘It’s A Mess’ further hone the band’s dream pop adding extra allure through the musical interplay that coagulates behind Caroline Landahl’s ethereal vocal.
“Perpetually swaying between comforting and devastating” Gorilla Vs Bear reckoned of their debut album, ‘You Tried’ from 2016, and last year’s ‘Siesta’ was celebrated for being “nostalgic for ‘90s indie pop innocence” by MOJO.
As their reputation gathers global attention, Hater have continued to blossom making a compelling slice of angular pop music that’s dysfunctional, dreamy, tempting and teasing.
‘Four Tries Down’ presents an acute hand-tooled angular rasp, with its chiming guitar chopped out against a disengaged rhythm, topped with the dreamy ambience of Caroline Landahl’s whispered confessional that cuts through the mesmerising hum.
‘It’s A Mess’ is more subtle, with a teenage Nico admitting to inevitable boyfriend trouble. Drums rattle before cutting down to the basics to let Landahls pontificate as it all goes wrong – it’s a beautiful mess. Beautiful.
Set for release this Autumn, 7" 'Four Tries Down' coincides with Hater’s first US tour.
