First Hate Releases New Album

After teasing various singles over the past few months, Danish alternative pop duo First Hate release their sophomore album Cotton Candy via Cascine and Escho. The 11-tracks of Cotton Candy coalesce around the quest of an escapist narrator stumbling through a broken world, winning and losing lovers, mood-swinging from extreme highs to hopeless lows. The title alludes to transience and ecstasy, the way sweetness can dissolve too easily into nothingness. Throughout, the productions embody these themes, glittering with synthetic detail and hypermodern finesse, effervescent but elusive.
