First Hate A Prayer For The Unemployed
Catalogue No.: ESC083
Release Date: 18th December 2020
Debut album from 2017 by Copenhagen synth-pop duo First Hate, distributed for the first time. Having refined their impeccable knack for melodies and dramatic pop productions, “A Prayer for the Unemployed” is a cornerstone in the world building of First Hate. Dark club beats meet synth melodies reminiscing both 80’s pop hits and more recent Euro dance lifestyle. The theatrical yet sincere vocal of charismatic front singer Anton Falck Gansted tells tales of euphoria and loneliness, of cursed relationships, sentimental nights and neverending dances while the sun rises. A dire atmosphere throughout the album is juxtaposed with use of playful flutes, harmonicas and sparkling trance keys, perfectly encapsulating all of the opposites that makes for the memories of youth. Since 2014, First Hate has gained a truly dedicated following all around the world. Building from the releases of their first EPs “First Hate” and “Mind of a Gemini” along with countless tours in Europe and Asia, the band has become a sensible catalyst for many fans caught in between youthful naivety and a growing feeling of mature responsibilities. “A Prayer for the Unemployed” provided an even more solid framework for First Hate’s characteristic aesthetic and broadened the reach of the band. New material from the duo is expected in 2021.
