Hammare Share New Single “Here Comes Trouble”

IMG_E6748

Following the release of their fantastic single “God Is Doing blow” back in 2018, Swedish duo “Hammare” have been hard at work releasing a single a year, and though that may seem like very little in this fast-paced streaming age of music we now live in, just remember, quality music takes time to create and has more longevity than mediocre songs that are pumped out just for the sake of staying relevant. This year we have been blessed with not one but two new “Hammare” songs. “In Back of the Real” was the first, and now the band have released the follow-up titled “Here Comes Trouble,” and as you’ve probably already guessed by the song titles, the band aren’t here to play it safe. At this point we know the band aren’t going to sugarcoat things. Their lyrical content reflects on the human condition and the ridiculous things that divide us when we should be more empathetic and accepting of each other. The band’s view on this can be from a dark and cynical lens, but instead of sounding defeated, they’re saying “We can do better.” “Here Comes Trouble” maintains that same tone, but this is the band’s most danceable track yet with Industrial-laden production consisting of discombobulating synth arpeggios, a funky as Hell bassline, and Desert Rock guitars that wouldn’t sound out of place on a “Queens of the Stone Age” record. You can listen to “Here Comes Trouble” below:

Track Review: Hammare – God Is Doing Blow

31BhBFVj2FL._SS500

Artist: Hammare

Song: God Is Doing Blow

Genre: Industrial Rock/Electronic 

 The debut single “God Is Doing Blow” from Swedish duo “Hammare” is an exploration in dissonance, but rather then descending further down the rabbit hole of inaccessibility, the band have every intention to make you move with the song’s danceable quality with it’s groovy rhythm section. The dissonance comes from the synthesizers and unconventional arrangements. The discombobulating machine sounding noise provided by said synthesizers brings a chaotic nature to the track, echoing the genre of “Industrial” music, but this is controlled chaos. It’s never overbearing, and it’s dichotomized with catchiness and sexy swagger. The instrumentation is dirty yet polished, and it compliments the vocals and lyrical content quite well. With lyrical content that seems to be touching on the abandonment of self-sufficiency and the misguided influences of charlatan leaders, it’s clear that the band wanted to emphasize the lyrics, because they have something to say, and they say it eloquently. This song sounds like a promise that the duo have a lot to deliver. Be ready.
