premiere: Hater – Four Tries Down
Malmö, Sweden indie pop luminaries Hater are gearing up for their first-ever U.S. tour, announced today with a moving new jam, taken from the group's forthcoming 7" single. "Four Tries Down" finds the band as dreamily bittersweet as ever, Caroline Landahl's effortlessly poignant voice hushed and reserved as she lulls us through choppy waters, her emotional plea only erupting into it
premiere: Hater – Fall Off
