HATCHIE

RELEASES ‘ADORED’ AS PART OF
2018 ADULT SWIM SINGLES PROGRAM
+ PLAYING SPILT MILK FESTIVAL,
FALLS FESTIVAL & GOLDEN PLAINS

‘There is an ease to her music; the three singles she’s released so far waft like a balmy breeze.’ – Pitchfork

‘Her particular brand of pop music is a rhythmic, lifting and 90s-embracing nod to carefree, happier days.’ – The 405

‘Hatchie swoops into earshot… a marvellous mesh of Cocteau Twins-y atmospherics & jangly 90’s pop.’ – The Line of Best Fit

‘Inject a bit of Hatchie’s cavernous-feeling millennium pop into your veins and it could probably power you through an entire night; get a taste of ‘Sleep’ for example, and you probably won’t be getting any.’ – Fader

Off the back of a fantastic year for Hatchie – including the release of her celebrated debut EP Sugar & Spice as well as sold-out shows across UK, Europe, Australia (sold out tour) and most recently, North America – the Brisbane artist has unveiled a stunning new track and accompanying video for ‘Adored’, filmed and directed by Trevor Crump.

‘Adored’ was debuted as part of Adult Swim’s eighth annual Singles Program, and is now available across all services. Debuting in 2001, Adult Swim serves as the nighttime identity of the US Cartoon Network.
Hatchie on ‘Adored’:

“Adored  is a song  that’s been floating  around for a few years  now so I’m really excited  it’s finally found it’s place  with this release. I’ve been playing  it live since my first show but didn’t  feel it fit on either my EP or album. It’s  about always wanting more than what you have, even  if it’s perfect.”

‘Adored’ is the first piece of new music since Hatchie’s debut EP Sugar & Spice was released in May this year, winning praise across the globe. The five-track collection, which has notched up 7.5 million streams and counting, includes singles ‘Try’, ‘Sure’, ‘Sugar & Spice’, ‘Sleep’ (Pitchfork’s ‘Best New Track’) and ‘Bad Guy’. Glowing reviews have followed Hatchie around and don’t seem to be slowing down with the likes of Pitchfork (including a Pitchfork Rising feature), Popjustice, Wonderland and The Guardian UK, triple j, FBi, Spotify, Apple Music, Purple Sneakers, VICE, TheMusic and many more rewarding her undeniable craft with shimmering praise.

Hatchie has just returned from touring North America with Alvvays and Snail Mail as well a string of headline shows, including selling out her debut LA gig.  Looking ahead, Harriette Pilbeam and her band prepare to return to Europe for performances at Pitchfork Paris’ Avant-Garde event in October and a London headline show at Electrowerkz on November 1st, before returning to Australia to play festivals Spilt Milk and Falls, as well as joining the just-announced 2019 Golden Plains lineup.

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 and white noise undulate beneath irresistible pop melodies. Rather than focusing on the external world of her daily life in Brisbane, Australia, Pilbeam instead turns her gaze inwards, making a soundtrack out of her daydreams, setting her emotional life to song.

In amongst a busy schedule, Hatchie is currently working on her anticipated debut album, which is scheduled for release in 2019. Stay tuned for more exciting Hatchie news!
