Off the back of her breakthrough first single ‘Try‘, Brisbane artist-on-the-rise Hatchie is back with the equally stunning new track, ‘Sure‘. The new single received its worldwide premiere via Zane Lowe on Beats1 and also via Fader online who called the track “transfixing and seriously catchie.” Hatchie will release her debut EP early in 2018 and will make her U.S. debut at SXSW.
‘Sure’ continues the story that began with the runaway success of this year’s pop gem ‘Try’. Seemingly coming out of nowhere, ‘Try’ (together with the video, premiered by NPR) introduced Hatchie as an artist to watch, gaining her placement on Spotify’s viral chart and tons of curious new fans.
Hatchie is the world of Harriette Pilbeam. The artist’s 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. Having played in other Australian bands (Go Violets, Babaganouj), 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.”
