Winter

Today, Winter has announced her new album What Kind of Blue Are You?, due out October 14th on cult indie label Bar/None Records (Yo La Tengo, Ivy).

Along with the news, Winter has shared lead single “atonement”, a rhythm centric banger buoyed by a tightly wound breakbeat and soaring chorus.

The track features Hatchie’s Harriette Pilbeam & Joe Agius, Winter will tour the West Coast with Peel Dream Magazine, and have announced LA & NYC releases shows.

On the single, Winter says “Every time I hear this song a new version of the story plays out in my head – an escape, a mystery, a forbidden love. By the time it reaches full climax there is a big reveal – the secret is out, the we discover who committed the crime, the two lovers find each other.” On the collaboration, Pilbeam says the track “really wrote itself and was a lot of fun to make.” Agius adds, “The concept for the video immediately came to mind when working on the song together. The dark and talkative verses contrasting with the bubbly hopeful choruses really conveyed the kinda energy I wanted to translate”

Over the course of the pandemic, Samira decamped to Studio 22 in L.A. with producer Joo Joo Ashworth (Automatic, Dummy, SASAMI) where the pair spent the many months of harsh uncertainty sharpening her songs into a fine point. “I felt like I was making music in a dark cave with an old friend and no one else existed,” Samira says of the process. Within that place of separation from the outside world, she was able to venture into the core of Winter, imbuing every musical choice with a confident intentionality, and newfound vulnerability. Whereas 2020’s Endless Space (Between You and I) was steeped in fairytale surrealism and springlike grace, What Kind of Blue Are You? is crystalline and spartan, songs stripped to their inner blue core – Winter’s smoldering shadow self.

Hatchie

Hatchie has officially released her anticipated new album and Secretly Canadian debut, Giving The World Away.

Hatchie has shared a Joe Agius-directed video for album standout “The Rhythm.”

Giving The World Away marks the start of a chapter in which Hatchie infuses her dazzling dream-pop and shoegaze tangle with a deeper and more honest portrayal of herself. “There’s more to me than just writing songs about being in love or being heartbroken — there’s a bigger picture than that,” Hatchie explains. “This album really just feels like the beginning to me, and scratching the surface – and even though it’s my third release as Hatchie, I feel like I’m rebooting from scratch.”

Giving the World Away is a sprawling work. Featuring extensive input from long-time Hatchie collaborator Joe Agius, it takes the celestial, shimmering shoegaze and pop sensibilities of her earlier releases, but with the volume knob cranked up tenfold. Built out with percussion from Beach House drummer James Barone, it’s synthed-out, sonic opulence, a more structured and ornate musicality with traces of ‘90s trip-hop and acid house influences.

Hatchie shares a video for “Lights On,” the latest indie-pop gem from her forthcoming second album, Giving The World Away, out April 22nd on Secretly Canadian.

Written with the album’s producer, Jorge Elbrecht (Japanese Breakfast, Sky Ferreira), during a session in LA in 2020, Hatchie elaborates on the track saying, “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.”

Hatchie shares a lyric video for “Giving The World Away,” the title track and new single from her anticipated new album, Giving The World Away. The album, produced by Jorge Elbrecht (Japanese Breakfast, Sky Ferriera), is available for pre-order now and due April 22nd via Secretly Canadian.

“‘Giving The World Away’ is about being gentle with yourself in the throes of depression,” says Hatchie. “We made a simple lyric video with analogue effects to let the lyrics of the song speak for themselves.”

Hatchie is hitting the road this summer on a North American tour.

TOUR DATES:

Giving The World Away, the second full-length from Hatchie, is the truest introduction to the songwriter. Although her sound arrived fully-formed, a dazzling dream-pop and shoegaze tangle, it’s here that she distills the core of herself into a record. “There’s more to me than just writing songs about being in love or being heartbroken — there’s a bigger picture than that,” Hatchie explains. “This album really just feels like the beginning to me, and scratching the surface – and even though it’s my third release as Hatchie, I feel like I’m rebooting from scratch.”

Today, Hatchie (aka Harriette Pilbeam) has announced her new album Giving The World Away, set for release on April 22nd via Secretly Canadian. To mark the occasion, she has shared the single “Quicksand” and its companion video directed by Nathan Castiel. The single was co-written with GRAMMY-nominated Olivia Rodrigo collaborator, Dan Nigro, and long-time Hatchie collaborator Joe Agius. Giving The World Away was produced by Jorge Elbrecht (Japanese Breakfast, Sky Ferreira).

“‘Quicksand’ is about dealing with the realisation that you’ll never be satisfied,” Pilbeam comments. “I started writing it when I was home between tours in 2019 before finishing it with Joe Agius and Dan Nigro the next year. I was feeling guilty and ungrateful for not being happy about a few different things in my life that were technically going well. I had to work through some tough learned thought processes and emotions that had been working away for years to try to understand how to be happy with my present, and stop fixating on my past and future. The video digs deeper into showing this juxtaposition of such sadness and anger despite being surrounded by glamour and grandeur.” Director Nathan Castiel said of the video, “for ‘Quicksand’, I created a video that plays off of some tropes of Hollywood glamour in a melancholy and surreal way while giving Harriette room to perform and express the song’s raw emotion. We leaned into a neon-tinged after hours aesthetic and shot on 16mm which added a griminess to the opulent locations and set pieces.”

Giving The World Away, the second full-length from Hatchie, is the truest introduction to the songwriter at the helm of the project, Harriette Pilbeam. Although her sound arrived fully-formed, a dazzling dream-pop and shoegaze tangle, it’s here that she distills the core of herself into a record. “There’s more to me than just writing songs about being in love or being heartbroken — there’s a bigger picture than that,” Pilbeam explains. “This album really just feels like the beginning to me, and scratching the surface – and even though it’s my third release as Hatchie, I feel like I’m rebooting from scratch.”

Hatchie, the project of Brisbane, Australia’s Harriette Pilbeam, has signed to Secretly Canadian and shared a video for her new single “This Enchanted.”

Of the song, Pilbeam says, “‘This Enchanted’ encapsulates everything I wanted to do moving forward from my first album. I started writing it with Jorge and Joe in February 2020 and completed it from afar in lockdown later in the year. We had been talking about making something dancey but shoegaze.”

“It’s one of the more lighthearted, lyrically vague songs of my new recordings about falling in love; it’s not a perfect relationship, but you’re enthralled by one another and it’s an easy love,” she continues. “It’s one of the most fun songs I’ve written, so it was a no-brainer to pick it as my first solo release in almost two years. It feels so right to be working with a label as exciting as Secretly as I step into new territory with Hatchie. I’ve been counting down the days until its release for a long time.”

Jumping in head first, Fergus played his first show supporting Ed Sheeran and has since gone on to support Meg Mac and open the main stage at Splendour in the Grass – which means no one is more primed to bring a blistering ISOL-AID set this Sunday.
