Following her breakthrough debut singles ‘Try’ and ‘Sure’, Brisbane artist-on-the-rise Hatchie has announced her highly anticipated debut EP, ‘Sugar & Spice’. The EP will be released amidst a flurry of UK shows on Friday May 25 via Heavenly Recordings, and the title track is online now, accompanied by a new video.
Watch the official video for ‘Sugar & Spice’ by Hatchie below –
The video for ‘Sugar & Spice’ was made by Hatchie band-member Joe Agius, with Harriette Pilbeam – the artist behind Hatchie – commenting: “Joe and I spent about an hour filming with the guys and two days drawing for the video. It’s such a fun short song, so we wanted something simple and colourful, and less serious than our previous videos. Joe came up with the concept and we took inspiration from our old school scrapbooks.”
The release comes hot off the back of a remarkable nine months for Hatchie. After signing to Ivy League Records for Australia/New Zealand, Heavenly Recordings for UK/Europe and Double Double Whammy/Polyvinyl for North America, and recent performances at SXSW, the international demand will see Hatchie embark on a huge run of shows. The UK leg in May will take in festivals such as Live at Leeds, Liverpool Sound City and The Great Escape as well as a string of London shows.
