A couple months back we published our best of the first half of 2017 list, http://blocland.com/music/best-albums-2017, and Copenhagen duo First Hate led that list off at #20. Several of the Blocland staff adore that album and today it dawned on me other than the aforementioned album ranking we haven’t posted anything FROM the album. Let’s right that wrong here today. Joakim Nørgaard & Anton Falck comprise First Hate and are just two more folks from the Copenhagen scene that appears to have an endless well of talent. This track, “The One”, is pretty typical of what you are getting into with these guys. So much of this album has that snakey drum beat backing very melodic vocal lines. Think European Tanlines for a possible comparison. August is a bitch….First Hate and their album “A Prayer For The Unemployed” is the summer album that’ll keep your head boppin’. This one is a mortal lock for my personal top 10 2017 AOTY. Hope you enjoy.
