PNKSLM’s Hater, out of Sweden, dropped the second single off their much-anticipated debut album, You Tried. “Had It All" shows the indie-pop prodigies growth since their beloved EP Radius. Bandmates Caroline Landahl, Måns Leonartsson, Adam Agace, and Lukas Thomasson have set forth another earnest track on "Had It All" with dreamy vocals delivering a serious message. “Don’t go back to me/’cause you had it all/and you lost it all” Caroline croons, letting a former lover know they’re unwelcome to return to the relationship.
The band cut their teeth touring last year with musical heroes, The Radio Dept., who asked Hater to join them on their first Scandinavian tour in five years - quite the honor for a nearly brand new act. Hater will tour the UK and EU in support of their spring release, guaranteeing audiences heartfelt and impassioned performances of highly relatable indie-pop.
