premiere: hear Swedish indie-pop group Hater’s lovesick anthem “Had It All”

HATER YOU TRIED

We’re excited to premiere the new single from our favorite record of the year — so far, 18 days in — from Malmö, Sweden’s Hater. It takes something very special to get us this psyched about indie pop these days, and in Hater’s case, that is the raw emotional heft of frontwoman Caroline Landahl‘s gorgeous, achingly bittersweet vocals, perpetually swaying between comforting and devastating. The great Molly Rankin of Alvvays is an obvious but warranted comparison, as Landahl pulls off the rare feat of simultaneously imbuing these wistfully misty melodies with a warm ray of shimmering hope along with an intense longing and melancholy, as heard on the lovesick anthem “Had It All”. Hater’s absolute gem of a debut LP You Tried is out March 10th on PNKSLM.
