Madrid-based four-piece HATEM (aka Hola A Todo El Mundo) recently unveiled their new song “They Won’t Let Me Grow” on SoundCloud. This synth-laden new tune is a fairly drastic departure from their previous material, which gently oscillated between indie and folk, but it does retain the band’s remarkable pop sensibilities. “They Won’t Let Me Grow” is out now via Mushroom Pillow (also home to such acts as Cut Your Hair, Delorean and La Habitación Roja)
The song is taken off Ultraviolet Catastrophe, the band’s sophomore album, released in Spain last October and internationally in early 2013. The album’s ten cuts were inspired by late poet Roy Tiger Milton’s lengthy poem of the same title, which explored the mysterious qualities of human existence that fall outside the realm of perceived everyday reality.
