“Quicksand” is taken from Hatchie‘s sophomore album, Giving The World Away, out April 22 via Secretly Canadian.
Brisbane singer-songwriter Harriette Pilbeam aka Hatchie has announced the release of her sophomore record Giving The World Away. “It’s the concept of giving your heart away,” says Hatchie about what she described as her ‘truest’ project. “Putting everything on the line…the entire album is really me realising that I actually need to do that in order to grow and accept myself.”
Following up to “This Enchanted,” she has also unveiled the amazing Jorge Elbrecht-produced lead single “Quicksand,” which combines dream pop, shoegaze and a certain pop grandeur – Olivia Rodrigo‘s collaborator Dan Nigro is also credited on the cathartic track. “I’m capable of writing more than just nice dream-pop songs, and there’s more to me than just writing songs about being in love or being heartbroken — there’s a bigger picture than that,” Pilbeam adds. “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.”
