Hatchie - Sugar & Spice

Hatchie is to release her debut 'Sugar & Spice' EP on vinyl for first time in Europe via Heavenly Recordings on June 8th.

This limited edition 12" EP is on candy blue vinyl placed in a clear sleeve.

The EP features the singles 'Try,' 'Sugar & Spice' & 'Sure.'
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.

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.”

"Weaving together dream-pop and shoegaze influences from The Sundays to My Bloody Valentine, Pilbeam paints broad and bitter-sweet emotional landscapes in an overwhelming wash of guitar, overlaying them with vocal harmonies the Corrs would be proud of, and cutting through the haze with incisive pop lyrics, the consistently witty likes of which we last heard on Carly Rae Jepsen’s ‘Emotion’."

“Infectious, wonderfully organic and packed with potential, this Aussie is one to watch.”
