Hatchie releases Music Video for single ‘Sure’ + EP in 2018

Having already won praise across the globe for her second ever single, “Sure”, Brisbane newcomer, HATCHIE, has shared a video to accompany the track. Watch here

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.” Now, she shares the music video for “Sure” via DAZED who said, “Hatchie inches one step closer to the rainbow with ‘Sure’, a stately jangle-pop ode to an undead relationship with a shimmering lustre to match its predecessor.” Hatchie will release her debut EP early in 2018 and will make her U.S. debut at SXSW.

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.”

“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.”

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.
