Hater at Sea Change

Malmö quartet Hater joined us at Sea Change 2018 playing live at the Civic Hall and also stripping it back at the New Lion Brewery for a session. We even worked with the band to include a Flexidisc in the official program whilst we had them in town. Our go-to man Jay Bing followed Caroline, Måns, Adam and Lukas around town with his Olympus mju-ii to capture their weekend.


Their debut LP ‘Siesta’ was released last week and was rather predictably the Record of the Week at Drift. Whilst stocks last there are signed copies of that Flexidisc at Drift in person and online…

you can see proof of them being signed below.

really some of the most gloriously melancholic pop. It’s a brilliantly balanced LP. It’s optimistic and quietly euphoric, but on the surface at least, everything would seem maudlin. The vocals (especially in unison) are lush, some expert instrumental touches (synths, flashes of sax) and the baselines are utterly brilliant. Love this, will be our Autumn go to jam.

Shout out to Rachel at Soho Radio for being such great company and a tireless pro throughout the weekend. We will also post the full Sea Change Inaugural Cricket match commentary from Roy Wilkinson and Will Burns shortly.

A short thank you.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being part of Sea Change 2018.

We're just at the end of an incredibly intense few weeks work and all trying to take a few moments to take in the past weekend; the bands, the sites, the tastes, the drinks and most of all the friends. 

Once we've all had a few days off from Rupert, we'll no doubt start talking about our highlights, sharing some images and talking about the future.

Until then, thank you again.

The entire Sea Change team.
