First Hate are a synth-pop duo from Copenhagen consisting of Anton Falck Gansted (Vocals/Keys) and Joakim Norgaard (Keys/Vocals). The duo combine lo-fi synthetically programmed melodies and drum beats fused with live keyboard recordings, Gansted’s deep reverb drained vocals are at the forefront of the bands sound. In September 2014, the band released their self titled debut EP First Hate and have recently toured with Danish producer Trentemøller on the eastern European leg of his Lost tour.
They visited us at Black Tornado studios in Copenhagen on a cold winters day to give us a peak into their world, giving us a taste of their “snake rhythm” genre leading us through “Girls In The Club” and “Strange Weather” – both from their self-titled debut EP. An additional song will be added to the session in the coming month, new single “Time” is scheduled for release towards the end of March, check back then!
Until then, here’s “Girls In The Club” and “Strange Weather”:
