HATCHIE – ” Giving the World Away “

Posted: June 16, 2022 in MUSIC

Hatchie, the dream pop project of Australian musician Harriette Pilbeam, released a new album, “Giving the World Away”, on April 22nd via Secretly Canadian. She shared its fourth single, album opener track “Lights On,” via a video for it. Long-time Hatchie collaborator and guitarist Joe Agius (who also releases music as RINSE) directed the video.

Pilbeam had this to say about the song in a press release: “‘Lights On’ was one of the first songs written for this album and set me on a path of writing more honestly and personally than previously. I don’t often write about physical attraction, but wanted to peel back the layers of a certain type of relationship. The video was conceptualized around a blend of our favourite sci-fi influences from the last 30 years relating to the title of the song.”

Giving the World Away” includes “This Enchanted,” a new song Hatchie shared in September via a video for it. “Giving the World Away” was announced Hatchie shared a new song from it, “Quicksand,” Then Hatchie shared its third single, title track “Giving the World Away,” via a lyric video for it.

Giving the World Away” is Hatchie’s second full-length album, the follow-up to her acclaimed debut album, “Keepsake“, which came out via Double Double Whammy.

Jorge Elbrecht (Sky Ferreira, Japanese Breakfast, Wild Nothing) produced the album, which also features Agius and Beach House drummer James Barone.

Hatchie is featured on Under the Radar’s 20th anniversary compilation album, “Covers of Covers”, where she covers HAIM’s “FUBT.”
