Hatchie is the creation of Harriette Pilbeam.
To listen to her music, is like stepping into her little world, as she turns the central focus on her music inwards, creating a backing track to her daydreams. New single 'Sure', was written when the melody randomly popped into Pilbeam's head.
“I wrote "Sure" about people I know falling in and out of the same relationship issues as we grew out of our teens into early adulthood” she explains. “When I initially wrote it, it was about a couple that decided to give it "one more shot" over and over again because they couldn't bare to be apart. When I think about all the lyrics now I realise that it could be interpreted in a number of different ways.”
'Sure' continues on the story that she started to tell with gem 'Try', which was a huge success in her home country of Australia. This new single lays down the path for what is going to be a busy 2018 for Hatchie, which currently includes shows at SXSW this March.
