Hatchie On World Cafe

  • Listen:
    Hatchie on World Cafe Hatchie is Harriette Pilbeam, and when she’s not playing bass in the Australian rock band Babaganouj, she's creating her own dream-pop music. It started last year with her debut single, "Try," which became a huge hit in her home country. And now, she's released her first solo EP, called Sugar & Spice. We'll hear some of those lush soundscapes in a live set today. And she talks with host Stephen Kallao about what it was like to strike out on her own as a solo artist, and why she buries her more personal lyrics in a wall of sound. Hatchie, on the next World Cafe.
Harriette Pilbeam talks about striking out as a solo artist and capturing the sparkling sounds of 90s pop on her debut EP, Sugar & Spice.
So much of the music of the last few years has been influenced by the sounds of the 1980's. The revolutionary (and affordable) gear made it's way into musicians hands and people continue to go back to those sounds and textures. However, for this generation of young adults making music, there's another decade to explore ripe with it's own stylistic quirks - the 1990's. Hatchie is one of those artists.
