More Info:

Resolute in their sound, 'Siesta' is the perfect soundtrack for that summer romance and the inevitable break up that follows.

Heartbreak has never sounded so sweet! Produced by Joakim Lindberg (Vast 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 epitomise jangling grace as Caroline Landahl coos with maximum approachability" - NPR

"Their unique take on rock music feels familiar and lived-in, taking bits from indie-pop, post-punk and classic rock." - Stereogum

"Gorgeous, achingly bittersweet vocals, perpetually swaying between comforting and devastating." - Gorilla vs Bear
