Hater’s powerful vulnerability and charm has seen them rise quickly through the ranks earning kudos from NPR (Austin 100), Stereogum (Best New Bands Of 2017), The Fader, BBC6 Music, BBC Radio 1 and more. Effortless and assured, the Scandi quartet drift eloquently into well-structured and stunning melodies.
Resolute in their sound, ‘Siesta’ is the perfect soundtrack for that summer romance and the inevitable break up. Heartbreak has never sounded so sweet!.
Produced by Joakim Lindberg (Yast and Hey Elbow) at Studio Sickan within old railway sheds outside of Malmö Sweden. Hater tackle their personal experiences of life, love and relationships yet through their shared songwriting there’s a togetherness. Synth pop earworm ‘It’s So Easy’ contrasts the slower paced ‘I Wish I Gave You More Time Because I Love You’ that blends beautiful sweeping sax from Inge Petersson Lindbäck.
Hater “boast Marr-esque guitars and vocals reminiscent of fellow Swedes and The Concretes” (Norman Records) whilst having the pop sensibilities of The Chills, Alvvays, Snail Mail and Makthaverskan.
“Hater’s songs epitomize jangling grace as Caroline Landahl coos with maximum approachability.”
“Their unique take on rock music feels familiar and lived-in, taking bits from indie-pop, post-punk and classic rock.”
“Gorgeous, achingly bittersweet vocals, perpetually swaying between comforting and devastating.”
