Hatchie

  • Hatchie

    Hatchie is the world of Harriette Pilbeam. Having played in other Australian bands, Hatchie is Pilbeam's first foray into solo territory, something she seems undaunted by. "I feel like I'm only just beginning to really assert myself in the world and the Hatchie project has forced me to reassess and make so many positive changes," she says. "When I look back on this period of time, I think I'll see Hatchie as a huge evolutionary force in my life."

    The instinctual pop nous is undoubtedly on full display in "Sure," but like all of Hatchie's music, the track trades in shade as well as light. It's at once accessible yet cerebral, walking a line between instant ear worm and something deeper and more oblique. It continues the story that began with pop gem "Try;" a runaway success at home in Australia, which also won Hatchie a fan in Cocteau Twins' Robin Guthrie. "It's pretty weird being social media friends with one of your heroes" laughs Pilbeam.

    "Hatchie invites you to bathe in the joyous essence of Keepsake. From the opening notes of "Not That Kind" until the closing utterances of "Keep," her vice-like grip over your attention never threatens to wane."
    —Under The Radar

    "Keepsake showcases an artist wholly sure of her sound from the outset, featuring tightly-crafted pop music that vacillates between cathartic refrains and contemplative verses with precision."

    Hatchie Releases New Single + Video "Obsessed"


    Hatchie has released the final single from Keepsake. "Obsessed" is released alongside a video of endearing footage from their most recent full US tour. Keepsake will be available everywhere on June 21st!

    "As she sings in a whispery voice, guitars cushion her voice, fading in and out like a crossover of stringy ’90s indie rock, gentle shoegaze, and electronic dream pop."
    —Consequence of Sound

    “Obsessed” pushes the singer further into shoegaze-y territory, with fuzzy guitar and searing lyrics reminiscent of My Bloody Valentine and the Cocteau Twins: “Hung myself out to dry till you let me in/That’s when I knew I’d clip my wings, do anything for you.”
    —Rolling Stone



    US Tour



    Tickets on sale Friday, May 17th. Get them at hatchie.net.

    Hatchie "Stay With Me" Video Out Now


    Hatchie has released a song and music video for "Stay With Me" —

    which she refers to as a song for "those crying in the club moments."

    "The yearning chorus of “Stay With Me,” punctuated with ethereal stabs of ‘90s synth,

    is delicious in its desperation and incredibly catchy. It’s a promising second look at the

    surprises Hatchie has in store on Keepsake." —Paste Magazine


    "Stay With Me" is the second single from the upcoming full-length Keepsake, out June 21st!

    Hatchie releases "Sugar & Spice" video, EP out May 25

    Indulge yourself in Hatchie's sweet new video for "Sugar & Spice", the title track off their forthcoming EP.


    "[Hatchie] revels in a billowy backdrop of fuzzed-out guitar, her self-assuredness bolstered by peppy backing vocals." -Pitchfork

    "Basically a perfect radio-friendly indie-pop song — if radio stations were still playing perfect indie-pop songs like this — it matches its spangly guitar shimmer with vocal harmonies that sound almost like the late Dolores O’Riordan at her sweetest." -Stereogum

    Sugar & Spice will be released on May 25th and you can preorder it right now!

    Recent Press:
    "Hazy and misty, but with pop-rooted forward momentum; the glistening guitars and synthesizers, along with Pilbeam's ethereal vocal delivery, evoke (apt) Cocteau Twins comparisons." - NPR

    "Transfixing and genuinely catchy - like, turn-of-the-century radio pop catchy." - The FADER

    "Shoegazey with a dream pop edge... Somewhere between Cocteau Twins and Sky Ferreira." - Noisey
