WATCH: Hatchie – ‘Stay With Me’

“I’m a sucker for crying-in-the-club tracks” says Australia’s Hatchie – and we’re happy to sob under the strobe lights to her catchy new single ‘Stay With Me’. The electronic-pop gem is taken from her highly anticipated debut album Keepsake, which is set for release on June 21st via Heavenly.

Hatchie (aka Harriette Pilbeam) explains how ‘Stay With Me’ came to be: “[The song] was written as a writing exercise in an effort to step away from my usual style into something more fun and dancey. We originally wrote it with someone else in mind, but realized it was the perfect fit for my album as I wanted to expand into a different sound. It became one of my favourite songs on the record”.

On her upcoming album, Hatchie has blended and explored new textures – from industrial to new wave to dance-pop. Despite not being a sentimental person, Hatchie says the record is “a keepsake in itself” – an aural memory of moments and experiences translated with her shining, upbeat energy.

LISTEN: The Orielles – ‘Blue Suitcase (Disco Wrist)’

Having wowed crowds at festivals such as Green Man and Truck last year, and sold out venues including The Lexington, we couldn’t have been more excited to hear about the release of The Orielles‘ debut album next month.

Taken from the album is new single ‘Blue Suitcase (Disco Wrist)’. Inspired by the experience of spending time in the studio over the summer, the lyrics tell a profound story of spotting an unaccompanied case on a train platform and the discussions that followed. Filled with joyous, jangly hooks and woozy, sunny harmonies, the track oozes the band’s trademark dreamy, psych-filled scuzz alongside added funk-filled beats and an uptempo retro groove.

Another wonderfully infectious sonic delight from our most favourite young trio.

 

Silver Dollar Moment, the upcoming debut album from The Orielles, is out 16th February via Heavenly Recordings.
