Fresh from a US tour supporting Girtpool, Hatchie is gearing up for her return to Europe next month and the release of her debut album ‘Keepsake.’
Today, Hatchie shares her third single ‘Obsessed‘ – another irresistibly catchy tune that follows the release of ‘Without A Blush‘ and ‘Stay With Me‘.
About the track, Harriette says:
“It’s a song about friendship. I wrote it when reflecting on my teenage tendency to cling to a new best friend for support, until I eventually convinced myself I wasn’t worthy of their friendship. It’s ultimately a celebration of meeting somebody who you look up to who helps you grow into a more adventurous person.” The video captures the band on the road in the US last month.

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, 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.
Ultimately ‘Keepsake’ serves as a document of a particularly kinetic moment in Hatchie’s life. “I’m not much of a nostalgic person when it comes to memories, but I do have a tendency to hold on to certain things, like tickets from the first time I went someplace on holiday,” says Hatchie in reflecting on the album’s title. “It made sense to me to call the record that, at a time when I’m going to probably end up with a lot of keepsakes—and in a way, this whole album is almost like a keepsake in itself.”
