  • Description

    Debut album from 2017 by Copenhagen synth-pop duo First Hate. 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 '80s 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.
