The album "Hate" by acclaimed Glasgow group The Delgados ushers in a new era of emotionally vulnerable and cinematic songwriting. It is her most ambitious expression to date. Recorded against a backdrop of personal changes and international crises, "Hate" turns darkness into light. A closed universe of tragedy and magic, a swirling galaxy of lush orchestration, misanthropic but treated with kindness and dark comedy. It shows a band coming to terms with their fragility while finding new strength and grace.
