Review: Hate Me First – Lauren Hoyle

Birmingham based Lauren Hoyle combines nineties female led alt-rock with singalong pop in latest single ‘Hate Me First’ – taken from her debut EP ‘Fun’.

You’ll love this if, like Lauren, you enjoy indie rock sounds from bands like The Big Moon, Hole and The Cardigans.

Hate Me First is out May 21

‘Hate Me First’ is a vibrant break-up song full of melodic guitar licks, shimmery cymbals and Lauren’s strong, sassy vocals sharing a story of competitiveness between old lovers.

Lauren said: “Hate Me First is all about your ex telling bad things about you to your mates. I got really insecure that friends would turn against me and think I was a terrible person, but in reality, it’s not like that. We’re all grown ups, but I wanted to write a song about that moment of – f*ck you, I’m moving on”. Reader, there are swears in this song- it is not for the faint-hearted!

The ‘Fun’ EP is pegged for release in September 2021 with Babywoman Records.
