After returning earlier in the year to release their single ‘Banana’, a retort to the recent #MeToo movement and first new material since their debut album ‘The Haze Is Forever, Swedish trio Dolores Haze are back with their latest electro-pop swoon ‘Play Hard F**k Hard Love Hard’.
Much like ‘Banana’, ‘Play Hard F**k Hard Love Hard’ continues the band’s unrelenting attitude towards female empowerment in the music industry, yet sees them adopt a far softer approach in the process.
While their last release unleashed the bold and brash side to their direction, ‘Play Hard Fuck Hard Love Hard’ aims to highlight the more contemporary pop side to their style, taking cues from other Scandinavian artists such as Tove Lo and Sigrid in the process.
Speaking about the new track, the band says that, “This song is for all destructive party people, looking for love in the wrong places, loving the wrong people too hard. Giving so much but never seem to feel content. Going around in the same circles. End up feeling nothing but emptiness”
It is clear from this new aesthetic that Dolores Haze are beginning a new journey and looking to branch out from their familiar ways. ‘Play Hard Fuck Hard Love Hard’ may be titled like a typical Dolores Haze song, but the feel and vibe of this new record is something fresh and exciting for them, showing they are now at the beginning of their next evolutionary phase, and will be available to stream and download 24th August 2018 via Warner Music Sweden.
