First Hate Announces New Album ‘Cotton Candy’

Danish alternative pop duo First Hate announces their sophomore album Cotton Candy due May 27th via Cascine and Escho. Along with the album’s announcement, the duo shares the lead single “Commercial”, which arrives with a self-directed montage video of the duo joyriding with friends around Copenhagen, as well as a second track “In My Head”. The songs reveal the range of sounds on the forthcoming album and sets the stage for the band to continue to roll out singles in pairs across the campaign.

Joakim of First Hate expands on what his thoughts are behind “Commercial” describing, “Big white smiles and perfect photoshopped bodies with over-dimensioned features on everything from big billboards on the highway to our Instagram feed. This song is about the big wheels of capitalism turning around constantly and indulging in it.” Anton adds that the track encapsulates, “Everything the capitalist heart desires.”
