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

kinder, Friday, 30 October 2020 23:56 (two years ago) link

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.

Johnny Fever, Saturday, 31 October 2020 04:36 (two years ago) link

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

ufo, Saturday, 31 October 2020 06:01 (two years ago) link

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

Johnny Fever, Saturday, 31 October 2020 06:08 (two years ago) link

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.

Perfect new single

Pushing all those 90s feels for me.

Chewshabadoo, Tuesday, 14 September 2021 16:19 (one year ago) link

It feels a bit all over the place for me but it's got its moments.

I guess the melody/chorus could've been better, imo.

Yeah this is best part about it for sure. The piano sound in particular is a nice touch.

daavid, Tuesday, 14 September 2021 16:55 (one year ago) link

The madchester drums don't hurt either.

enochroot, Tuesday, 14 September 2021 17:43 (one year ago) link

Yes! I hadn't even payed attention to that. The first 35 seconds are very Happy Mondays. And then the guitar is full-on Shoegaze (a little on the noisier side this time).

daavid, Tuesday, 14 September 2021 20:15 (one year ago) link

There also this recent cover of Taylor Swift's August:


Probably the Cocteau-est sounding thing she's done.

daavid, Tuesday, 14 September 2021 20:20 (one year ago) link

new song is decent but not her best, great guitar sound though

glad to hear her cover "august", it really needed someone to give it a dream-pop cover

really regretting deleting fb a while back now because without it i had no idea she was regularly (& safely!) playing local shows all through the pandemic, would have been nice to see

ufo, Wednesday, 15 September 2021 10:24 (one year ago) link

That piano is very Madchester, I love this. Also she seems a lot more at ease in this video than any of her previous ones.

boxedjoy, Wednesday, 15 September 2021 17:15 (one year ago) link

Maybe we can get Wax to reunite for a Wax / Hatchie / Waxahatchee tour.

Has a slight feel of something St Etienne might've done at some point in the past 30 years

Yeah, not bad!

kinder, Tuesday, 19 October 2021 21:45 (one year ago) link

I played the August cover to my other half yesterday then today I heard the original in a charity shop for the first time.

Can't wait x 2

The new track is decent too! She's yet to release a bad song.

daavid, Wednesday, 19 January 2022 17:48 (ten months ago) link

thoroughly excited for this new record based off these pre-release tracks -- "Quicksand" especially is so fucking good

winters (josh), Wednesday, 19 January 2022 22:02 (ten months ago) link

Hatchie and Dan Nigro together is a dream come true tbh

boxedjoy, Wednesday, 19 January 2022 22:51 (ten months ago) link

i have a ticket to see her next month but i'm probably not going to go with the covid situation, i bought tickets right before news of omicron hit unfortunately

ufo, Wednesday, 19 January 2022 23:00 (ten months ago) link

I saw her play live a few years back and she was excellent - very faithful to the studio versions but for me at least that was absolutely not a problem.

Tim F, Wednesday, 19 January 2022 23:33 (ten months ago) link

yeah i've seen her before so it's no great loss

ufo, Thursday, 20 January 2022 01:44 (ten months ago) link

Maybe my favorite live-sounding act (compared to how the sound on the record). They really crank up the shoegaze and it works beautifully.

Listening to this right now by pure coincidence. Nice enough.

And another one:


This is shaping to be quite the album.

daavid, Thursday, 24 March 2022 18:38 (eight months ago) link

Incredible song. That second chorus really is a moment.

Her album coming out the same day as the Real Lies one is going to end me. I'm thinking of taking the following week off work.

kitchen person, Thursday, 24 March 2022 19:21 (eight months ago) link

is there anything as good as Stay with Me, Sure or Secret on the new record?

her first album disappointed me a little bit, but she has about half a dozen or so songs that have developed a very special place in my heart

josh az (2011nostalgia), Friday, 22 April 2022 11:18 (seven months ago) link

Album is fantastic

Absolute scenes here listening to this track:


groovypanda, Friday, 22 April 2022 15:01 (seven months ago) link

wow, love the sound on this. got some real NIN/industrial qualities folded into the ravey/housey/whooshy/Cocteau soup she was already serving up.

Doctor Casino, Friday, 22 April 2022 15:13 (seven months ago) link

yeah "the rhythm" really goes for it with its industrial madchester thing

ufo, Saturday, 23 April 2022 23:27 (seven months ago) link

idk if anything on here quite matches "stay with me" or "obsessed" but it's solid and maybe a little stronger than the debut overall, the new industrial edge to the guitars really helps

ufo, Sunday, 24 April 2022 00:38 (seven months ago) link

I don’t really hear industrial - more Curve (especially Cuckoo), though I guess if you were casting around for a contemporary reference point then the last Halsey album might be one.

I feel like the melodies Hatchie concocted on the first EP were so indelible that it has placed her in something of a quandary ever since. She occasionally gets back to that level (“Obsessed” being the best example probably) but both the first album and now this one mostly have less memorable melodies - but the flipside is that that maybe liberates her to explore sonically, and I can’t help but nod approvingly at almost every choice she makes on this new one. It’s a lovely sounding album.

Tim F, Sunday, 24 April 2022 09:05 (seven months ago) link

Should clarify that “less memorable melodies” is only relative - there’s some fantastic melodies on both albums.

Tim F, Sunday, 24 April 2022 09:11 (seven months ago) link

it's really just "the rhythm" that's not far off nine inch nails in places but the harder-hitting guitars on it show up a fair amount elsewhere too

ufo, Sunday, 24 April 2022 09:53 (seven months ago) link

was only sorta interested in hearing this til the radio played "The Key." so good, it's the future Cranekiss foretold.

I saw her this past May, and I had a great time. Everything about it was great. She plays the bass!

three months pass...

This has been a very dry year for music discovery for me. Nothing new that's come across my desk has really landed for me. But I'm listening to Hatchie's Giving the World Away and deeply enjoying it. I had never heard her before and this is really up my alley.

peace, man, Tuesday, 18 October 2022 11:35 (one month ago) link

i agree that it's good. some of the new record is very natalie imbruglia-core, which really hits the spot when i'm in the mood for it.

budo jeru, Tuesday, 18 October 2022 18:30 (one month ago) link

two weeks pass...

Oooh, both sides of the record end with locked grooves!

Yeah, she's working with an exciting blend of styles. Sometimes it's Natalie Imbruglia or Heather Nova, sometimes Curve, Lush, Cranberries, Happy Mondays on the title track for sure...so much more. A lot of artists that I love, but wouldn't necessarily listen to back-to-back.

peace, man, Wednesday, 2 November 2022 15:10 (one month ago) link


new song

ufo, Wednesday, 9 November 2022 14:27 (three weeks ago) link

I found the latest album a little disappointing tbh but love this new track. Helps I’ve been re-listening to a lot of Garbage recently.
