NEW MUSIC: HATCHIE - Keepsake
27 Feb 2019
HATCHIE shares a new single "Keepsake"
Hot off the heels of her UK tour supporting The Vaccines, Brisbane-based Hatchie has announced details of her highly anticipated debut album with a first single, video and summer headline tour dates.
On her debut EP 'Sugar & Spice', Hatchie delivered the sonic equivalent of falling deliriously in love: a sustained rush of feeling, rendered in swoony melodies and gauzy guitar tones and endlessly hypnotic layers of sound. Now, with her full-length debut ‘Keepsake’ due for release in the height of summer on June 21st via Heavenly, the Australian singer/songwriter tries on countless new textures, exploring everything from industrial to new wave to dance-pop, handling each with understated elegance and pure, powerful feeling.
On lead single “Without a Blush,” jagged guitar riffs and woozy rhythms meet in a sprawling piece of industrial-pop, with Hatchie’s gorgeously airy voice channeling loss and longing, regret and self-doubt.
Throughout ‘Keepsake’, Hatchie’s kaleidoscopic sonic palette draws out distinct moods and tones, continually revealing her depth and imagination as a musician and songwriter. In the making of the record, the Brisbane-bred musician otherwise known as Harriette Pilbeam recorded in a home studio in Melbourne and worked again with John Castle—the producer behind ‘Sugar & Spice’. And while the album begins and ends with two massively catchy pop tracks—the brightly defiant “Not That Kind,” the euphoric and epic “Keep”—many songs drift into more emotionally tangled terrain, shedding light on experiences both ephemeral and life-changing.
‘Keepsake’ will be released on June 21st via Heavenly. Pre-order links here: http://smarturl.it/keepsake
