I can see it being someone like Four Tet

She was probably referring to this:
It's Joe Agius's "solo" project, which consist of the same lineup as Hatchie except he's singing main vocals. So it's basically a Hatchie track.
I like it a lot. I realize that this stuff is probably super derivative but they do know how to write a song!
Looking forward to Hatchie's new stuff.

I kind of like it but also kind of think it goes into that Sixpence None the Richer song at the end

Even *more* Cocteau Twins-ish in the bass dept, I'm thinking.

I had to google who he even is (I guess I haven't ever heard of The Creases before?). This is v good, though.

he's hatchie's main guitarist/keyboardist & boyfriend, but yes he's formerly of the creases who are honestly not really worth knowing about. i saw them live once as an opening act and they were very forgettable

I listened to the one album that's on Spotify. It was perfectly ok, but probably once was enough.

I feel like these guys use the perfect shoegaze guitar / bass settings for me. Just the right mix of Cocteau Twins, Lush and Slowdive (with a bit of Sundays mixed in). And live they sound even better. I'm taking about Hatchie/Joe A.
