Four Tries Down is the latest 7” single by splendid Malmö, Sweden guitar pop band Hater. Jingly guitars, whispery vocals. Marvelous and arresting. One of my favorite bands these days.
Something else from the press release:
‘Four Tries Down’ and ‘It’s A Mess’ further hone the band’s dream pop adding extra allure through the musical interplay that coagulates behind Caroline Landahl’s ethereal vocal.
RIYL: Alvvays, Snail Mail, The Chills, The Concretes and The Go-Betweens.
Recommended Tracks: 1, 2
1. (3:46) ***Four Tries Down – Medium-up tempo. Great guitar work here. Sentimental pop at its best.
2. (2:35) ***It's A Mess – Medium-up tempo. Dreamy, wistful, and just perfect.
