I was already a devoted fan of Sweden’s Hater before seeing them perform a handful of times at SXSW back in March, but I (and everyone else in attendance, I assume) left those shows convinced that they were one of the best, most underappreciated bands in the world, feelings in a puddle on the streets of Austin, but life affirmed. It’s hard to articulate why Hater is just so, so much better than your average jangly indie-pop band; they’re never flashy, and there’s an intangible, you-know-it-when-you-hear-it quality to their best songs that puts the group in rare air alongside bands like Alvvays and the Chills, but ultimately, I think it comes down to the raw honesty and warmth that exude from Caroline Landahl’s bittersweet vocals and poignant lyricism. New song “Fall Off” finds Hater at their most softly devastating, wistful and full of hope, and it’s one of our favorite tracks from the group’s beautiful new LP Siesta, out next month on limited edition yellow vinyl double LP via Fire Records.
