SXSW Song Of The Day: Hatchie – Sure

Brisbane’s Hatchie (aka Harriette Pilbeam) has been making some headway recently back in Australia and now joins the contingent of Aussie artists who’ll be coming to SXSW this year.

Hatchie’s music has been described by Noisey as being “Somewhere between Cocteau Twins and Sky Ferreira.” That’s an intriguing mix, and I’ll add that Hatchie also reminds me slightly of another Harriett – The Sundays’ Harriett Wheeler. The chiming guitar that opens her song “Sure” brings to mind the same sort of sounds that The Sundays made back in their ’90s heyday. It’s a solid pop tune with a bit of shoegaze thrown in.

Hatchie plays Cheer Up Charlie’s on March 15 and Lucille on March 16.
