They’ve been the warm up band during Trentemøller‘s Eastern Europe tour last autumn. Before that they’ve played the Our Berlin Music Week event in June 2014. Danish magazine Soundvenue has chosen them as one of Denmark’s most hyped bands for 2015. Who are we talking about? First Hate.
In September 2014, this “Snake rhythm” (as they call their genre) duo from Copenhagen – consisting of Anton Falck Gansted and Joakim Nørgaard – published a self-titled debut EP. Now they released the single “Girls In The Club” from said EP. And you do not want to miss it!
“Girls In The Club” is a great example of what you can hear on the whole “First Hate” EP. The song creates a whole musical outer space, a small universe of sounds with lazy vocals as a cherry on top of the synth pop cake. When you look at the press photo of the First Hate guys, there is something early Depeche Mode about them. The same vibe of “People Are People” or “Just Can’t Get Enough” can be heard in the music. A delicate, subtle reference to the good old 80’s music, based on the sounds from “the machines”.
To accompany the single release of “Girls In The Club”, First Hate published a music video directed by Tobias Vestergard.
“We invited some of our girl friends to a club, asking them to dress in white outfits and dance along to ‘Girls In The Club’ all night long. Unfortunately, after several hours we had to stop filming due to too much alcohol being consumed, leading to too much booty on show. The final result is a highly censored version of that night.” – tell the guys about the video shoot.
