You might have missed Hater’s previous single “Mental Haven” because it premiered on 11/9, a day the world was reeling from the news of Donald Trump’s election and music felt like a secondary concern. But you ought to go back and listen to it because it’s one of the most gorgeous guitar songs in recent memory, one that sends lead singer Caroline Landahl soaring into melancholy reverie. The gritty Swedish indie-pop combo has delivered another such track today via Gorilla Vs. Bear, and it further suggests their upcoming You Tried will be a remarkable LP. Hear “Had It All” below.
You Tried is out 3/10 via PNKSLM. Pre-order it here.
