Hometown: Malmo, Sweden

Genre: Indie Rock

Why We're Excited: Not every band name is engineered to capture a sound or aesthetic. Exhibit A: the Swedish pop band Hater, whose songs epitomize jangling grace as singer Caroline Landahl coos with maximum approachability. No matter how much they're suffused with melancholy, Hater's songs can't help but waft like breezes.
