Hammare is an independent industrial/electronica duo based in Sweden. Their material is best described as a blend of electronic music and modern rock in experimental settings. Though there are clear influences from industrial acts such as DAF, NIN and Einstürzende Neubauten, Hammare’s bag consists of tricks gathered from a wide variety of genres.
Hammare is as a creative haven where music is brought about in an explorative manner, rather than letting boundaries set by specific genres limit the creative pursuits. Frequent use of dissonance, irregular phrasing, simplicity and sharp focus on lyrics and rhythm are trademarks of Hammare’s music. Making the familiar strange is what this band does best, as can be heard on the band’s debut ”God Is Doing Blow”, in which a plethora of familiar approaches to vocal hooks flow through unconventional instrumental arrangements. This duo is endearing to audiences appreciative of easy listening that also allows for deeper delving.
