Hatchie - Sugar Spice

HATCHIE
‘SLEEP’
(single taken from Sugar & Spice EP, out now through Ivy League Records)

‘Even though the Brisbane, Australia band has only released three dream pop singles so far, they’re clearly already experts in making lowkey anthems you want to dance to behind a closed bedroom door.’
– Pitchfork, ‘Sleep’ Best New Track Feature

‘Hatchie’s ‘Sleep’ is revisionist pop at its best.’ – Purple Sneakers

‘’Sleep’ is all about yearning to get closer to someone, even if it means entering their dreams, and here Hatchie has produced the perfect vessel for that mission.’ – The 405

Following the release of her debut EP Sugar & Spice last month, featuring breakthrough debut singles ’Try’, ’Sure’ and ’Sugar & Spice’, Brisbane artist-on-the-rise Hatchie has presented her stunning new single, ’Sleep’, ahead of her sold-out Australian tour in July.

Speaking of the single and video, Harriette Pilbeam – the artist behind Hatchie – says:

“We decided to play on the idea that I’m trying to get someone to communicate with me in their sleep. We made a bunch of dreamy sets to focus on, like I’m talking to them in their dreams. At some points I’m really serious, at other points I’m almost teasing them because I’m so over trying to get them to talk.”

‘Sleep’ features on Hatchie’s breakthrough debut EP Sugar & Spice – a release that has garnered praise from all corners of the globe, including DIY Mag (8/10), Exclaim (8/10), Pitchfork (7.5/10), Xpress Mag (9/10) & more.

It’s been a huge 12 months for Hatchie. From uploading her first single ‘Try’ to triple j Unearthed, the Brisbane artist has signed labels deals all over the world, played festivals such as Laneway, The Great Escape and Falls, headline shows in the UK & US and sold out her first Australian headline tour, taking place in July. Hatchie has also just finished touring the country with DMA’s.

Hatchie is the world of Harriette Pilbeam. To hear her music is to step inside her mind; a dreamy landscape where cascading synths, jangling guitars, propulsive rhythms and white noise undulate beneath undeniable and irresistible pop melodies. Rather than focusing on the external world of her daily life in Brisbane, Pilbeam instead turns her gaze inwards, making a soundtrack out of her daydreams, setting her emotional life to song.
