Best of Indiepop 2018

Our Indiepop Excursion Goes to Sweden with Hater

All about that worldly indiepop sound, and Hater have been one of the finest purveyors of the genre over the last year or so. The Swedish act allow us to continue our journey around the world (already hit up Norway and Japan), not to mention they continue to grow in their songwriting. The first of the tunes from the bands forthcoming Siesta LP offers more of what they’ve given us at this point in their career; the latter tune has a little more sonic exploration, utilizing some horns to continue with the melody. The new record will be out on September 28th via Fire Records.
