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.”
HATCHIE starts the night off with a hypnotic mix of soaring vocals and hazy guitar tones, weaving together layers of woozy rhythms. The Brisbane based musician is truly the dream pop idol of tomorrow, expertly creating heartfelt ear-worms that will stay with you for weeks and crafting live shows that’ll keep you glued to your screen.
Up next is PRICIE who is most definitely one to watch. A singer, songwriter and rapper – PRICIE’S got it all, and with the release of her first ever single, ‘too dang good,’ earlier this year, everyone else knows it too. PRICIE’s ISOL-AID set comes right off the back of four nights supporting Genesis Owusu at the Corner Hotel so you know she’s gonna be at the top of her game.
Crafting captivating songs from his Aunt’s spare room, FERGUS JAMES has taken local audiences by storm, (and racked up a whole handful of most played songs on Triple J). 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.
Ending the night on a high is BTS approved CHYMES. With ethereal vocals and hypnotic beats, Chymes infuses her playful pop music with intricate and in-depth concepts giving space to her voice in the most dreamy way possible.
