hmv's Next Big Thing... #177 Hatchie
Every Wednesday we recommend a brand new artist who we think you're going to love. This week we bring you Aussie upstart Hatchie...
Who Is She?
Hatchie is 25-year-old Australian Harriette Pilbeam. A Brisbane native, she's gigged around in various bands before pursuing a solo venture under the name Hatchie.
Now signed up with Heavenly Recordings, which is also home to Temples, Stealing Sheep and the excellent newcomers Confidence Man, she's just dropped an excellent new EP titled Sugar & Spice...
What Does She Sound Like?
Take the wondrous dreamy sonics of The Cure and the electronic precision of Talk Talk mix with a monster pop chorus, the kind Carly Rae Jepsen, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry would be very happy with, that's the sound of Hatchie.
Why Should I Be Excited?
Beautiful dreamy melodies, huge choruses and a playful spirit, works pretty well.
Can I Hear Something?
Absolutely. Her new jam 'Sleep' is below for you, enjoy:
