Three years ago, Dolores Haze released debut album The Haze Is Forever as Stockholm’s coolest new punks, four kids barely out of school playing abrasive, fuck-you rock music. Three years on, things have changed a little. After recalibrating as a three-piece (due to losing a member to an alpaca farm obviously), they’ve expanded their sound from short, sharp punk songs on their comeback album Play Hard, Fuck Hard, Love Hard, from the slow dream-pop of the title track to the brash electro-pop of FLIP. They’re heading out on tour to push the record this winter, landing in their hometown at Debaser.
