premiere: Hater – Coming Down


Malmö, Sweden indie-pop group Hater's stellar You Tried LP is a raw and emotionally charged collection of nostalgic, lovesick jams that remains one of our favorite albums of 2017. "Coming Down", a mostly unheard stunner from the You Tried sessions released as a Japan-only bonus track, is more evidence that Caroline Landahl slays, and that every song she sings feels like an empowering, poignant anthem for the brokenhearted, further warranting those inevitable Molly Rankin comparisons...

premiere: Hater – Cry Later


Psyched to premiere another gut punch of a track from Malmö, Sweden’s Hater, taken from the group's wonderful forthcoming LP You Tried, out next month on Stockholm label PNKSLM.
