First Hate are a Copenhagen based synth-pop duo who formed in the early part of 2013. Although in previous interviews they’ve tried to deny it their sound is leaning heavily on 80’s gloom synth with hints of early 90’s electronica creeping through. Since their debut performance at Henry’s Dream in July 2013 the guys have played a handful of festivals including Distortion, Trailerpark Festival, an AUDIO:VISUAL set at CPH:DOX and have just been hand picked to support Trentemøller on his east European tour.
The band release their debut EP First Hate today (Friday 12th September) after an offer from Ben Cook (Fucked Up/Youth Club) to help distribute the EP in North America, the 10″ is in limited supply with only 250 copies pressed. Grab one while you can.
