Coming from a musical family, The Hate Club’s Alex Poe exhibited innate musical talents at a young age but didn’t start to develop his sound until he found refuge in LA after fleeing from his home in Ukraine. He found through experimenting with a custom-built Ableton Push, he was able to combine his punk rock influences with his love for electronic music to fulfill his vision of reproducing the stage presence of a full-band to the electronic music scene.
“One Mile Away”, a standout track and video off the project, is initially reminiscent of the Arctic Monkeys’ early days but takes a refreshing turn as what sounds like a distorted bass guitar transition reveals itself as a springy, bass synth that cues in a Skrillex-esque breakdown. The fast-pace and heavy overdrive on the entire track showcases THC’s punk sensibilities and conjures strong feelings of angst as Poe expresses his frustrations with having one-night stands to cope with heartbreak.
