We have a new addition to the Heavenly roster:
and with it her debut ‘Sure’, the first fruit of this newly penned partnership.
Hatchie is one Harriette Pilbeam, a native of Brisbane who has already attracted plaudits at home prior to unsurprisingly picking up wider acclaim from the likes of NPR and Beats 1.
Having played with various friends and bands in Brisbane, Hatchie is her first venture into solo territory, one she is quick to admit is positive, that allows her to make her own decisions, assert herself and make so many positive changes
Her world is a dreamy landscape inhabited by cascading synths, jangling guitars and undeniable, irresistible pop melodies. Sure, prompted by a melody was composed on a whim and completed in a day. As she explains; “All of my songs start with singing. I hear the melody first and then work out the chords I’m imaginging under that and despite not knowing chord names I have a good ear so can kinda figure it out.”
That instinct is abundant on Sure, lush synths envelope alluring vocals that wouldn’t appear out of place in The Sundays and Allvvays songbooks – a gorgeous swathe of pop beauty, an enthralling introduction into the world of Hatchie. The track will be included on a forthcoming EP through Heavenly that will accompany her debut UK live dates.
Sure will be available digitally via Heavenly Recordings
