daviddorion I love the lead singer's voice; it has a nice rawness that adds emotion to the music. The music overall has a very American style. Guitar work is outstanding, as well. Favorite track: Mental Haven.

Camryn Marquez These songs are gentle moments of malaise that are sprinkled with melancholic beauty. It's that feeling of letting go of some kind of innocence. It's a very bittersweet feeling, but it's one of those feelings that, due to its rarity, enlivens the spirit like few other emotions can. The sound may be nostalgic, but that doesn't make it any less moving than other moments of nostalgia, like the great tragedy of Orpheus. Favorite track: You Tried.

about

The Swedish indie pop quartet Hater released their debut EP Radius this summer and now they’re back with new music in the shape of new single “Mental Haven”, the first single from their upcoming debut LP You Tried. You Tried is due on March 10 next year, released via Swedish indie label PNKSLM Recordings, and the album is produced by Swedish producer Joakim Lindberg (a Malmö based producer who’s previously worked with acclaimed indie acts such as YAST and Hey Elbow). A big step forward for the young act, more confident and melodious than the EP, but still retaining the urgency along with a heavy dose of both emotion and heart.

Hater was formed this spring by Caroline Landahl, Måns Leonartsson, Adam Agace and Lukas Thomasson, all musicians based in Sweden’s third biggest city Malmö, just across the strait from Copenhagen, who’d all had their share of experience in other local acts before deciding to strike out as Hater. They quickly set to recording what would become their debut EP Radius, working with Joakim Lindberg, and soon signed with PNKSLM Recordings who released the EP in early July. Taking their musical cues from the likes of Alvvays, The Pretenders, Neil Young and The Radio Dept, all led by Landahl’s gorgeous vocals, Hater soon drew a lot of attention, including praise from international music publications such as The FADER and The Line of Best Fit.

Among those to declare themselves fans were the band’s heroes in The Radio Dept. who asked them to open for them on their first Scandinavian tour in five years. After spending the summer and early fall recording You Tried while touring around Sweden and making their UK debut show in London, Hater will be touring with The Radio Dept. later this year ahead of a full UK and EU tour around the album release this spring. With You Tried Hater easily establishes themselves as Sweden’s most exciting new indie act, offering up a sound that’s both instantly accessible and grows with every listen.
