Hater – “Cry Later”
Swedish indie-pop quartet Hater have already stunned us twice, first with the softly radiant “Mental Haven,” and then with the punchier “Had It All.” Their debut album, You Tried, is out next month, and today they’ve released another single showing off their range and consistency. “Cry Later” dials up some of the grittier elements of their style, yet still retains that hazy jangle-rock sound they’ve proven deftly capable of conjuring. “We didn’t care if this was the last one,” lead singer Caroline Landahl melodiously heaves, as the cymbals crash down around her as if raining from above. The song is a mantra about steadfast acceptance, as well as a splendid burst of frizzy guitars. Listen below via Gorilla Vs. Bear.
