Hatchie has revealed details of her debut EP ‘Sugar & Spice’ and released the title track with a brilliant new video today.
‘Sugar & Spice’ follows the previously released singles ‘Try’ & ‘Sure’ from the Brisbane based artist Harriette Pilbeam.
The video for ‘Sugar & Spice’ was made by Hatchie band-member Joe Agius, with Harriette Pilbeam commenting:
“Joe and I spent about an hour filming with the guys and two days drawing for the video. It’s such a fun short song, so we wanted something simple and colourful, and less serious than our previous videos. Joe came up with the concept and we took inspiration from our old school scrapbooks.”

The ‘Sugar & Spice’ EP will be released digitally on Friday 25th May.
Speaking of the EP, Pilbeam says:
“After writing music that never felt cohesive or special enough to warrant its own venture, ‘Try’ marked a shift in my writing style I wasn’t expecting. I wrote it in early 2015, followed quickly by ‘Sleep’ and ‘Sugar & Spice’. They were written more for myself than for a specific project, in an effort to explore feelings of vulnerability and ecstasy I had previously suppressed. I wanted these songs to sound lush, sparkly, and recreate euphoric feelings I experienced falling in love for the first time. I reworked my demos with Joe Agius, whose production and writing additions achieved the perfect sound I was searching for, giving me confidence to start taking the songs more seriously and continue writing.
The songs on ‘Sugar & Spice’ were all written without much thought or pressure from myself or anyone else, allowing me to lay my feelings out like I’ve never done before. Joe & producer John Castle helped shape the sound you can hear in each track, bringing life to each song in its own special way.”
Next month Hatchie is coming over to the UK to celebrate the EP release.
