steveinsocal "...dreamy indie-pop with a lot of 80's sensibilities, with "Keepsake" Harriette Pilbeam once again effortlessly layers knock-out hooks and melodies, wrapping them all in her swooning vocals. However, the key ingredient is her diverse musical reference points; Cocteau Twins, The Cranberries, Bunnymen riffs and shoegazy guitars - even a touch of Kylie - through to Chvrches and Tamaryn... yet somehow made to sound all so cohesive…"

Give me one good reason I should let you out of my sight When what you’re running from is waiting for you over on the other side You try to take it in your stride but I know it doesn’t feel right Well we can make it we can break it if you just give me a little time I gave you what you wanted And you threw it away You threw it away Thought we could make it by the morning But you were gone without trace Gone without trace Fate keeps trying to find me But I’m not the kind of Girl to let it define me Yeah I’m not the kind and They keep trying to tell me That I’m out of time But all I’ve ever wanted All I’ve ever needed is you If I had a rose for every sorry that was overdue I’d have a garden full of flowers not this never-ending empty view And you can call it an obsession Call it anything you want to Just don’t say you didn’t see it coming running after us in rear view Fate keeps trying to find me But I’m not the kind of Girl to let it define me Yeah I’m not the kind and They keep trying to tell me That I’m out of time But all I’ve ever wanted All I’ve ever needed is you So tell me what you got Is it everything you hoped? I guess we’ve given up a lot but Is it enough to mend what’s broken?

You and me we were destined to fall apart Can you believe it’s been three years since the start? You couldn’t be any cooler if you tried Said you wouldn’t see nobody but you lied And I’m not gunna fight No I’m not gunna bite You and me we were destined to be the ones But we couldn’t see we were flying close to the sun And it didn’t take too much time for our wings to melt Guess it’s true what they say yeah some things are felt If I could kiss you one more time Would it make everything alright? Or would it just make me a liar? I didn’t wanna end tonight like a dream I didn’t wanna end the dream Never thought I would kiss you without a blush Always thought you would miss me too much to rush Didn’t take you too long to forget all about us Should I have let you be any more than a stupid crush? Well now I know I’m right Yeah now I know I’m right If I could kiss you one more time Would it make everything alright? Or would it just make me a liar? I didn’t wanna end tonight like a dream I didn’t wanna end the dream

So that’s it now for summer, so long And just like that he said “go on, get gone” Isn’t it time you pretended you’re strong? She needed something to make it feel real It could be bitter it could be surreal Just needed something to feel So she runs with no echo Shot her own heart with her own arrow Out of the shadow and into her light Dying to show herself she’s still a spark They say she runs until she starves The girl who chose to take back her heart New town for a while Who would have thought it’d take ten thousand miles No more smiling from the sidelines No longer the girl with the cynical view Think it’s high time now she was her own muse Gave herself an offer she couldn’t refuse She left with no record Realised her dream She needed to know Stop giving it time Time waits for none It’s never too late But don’t waste a day Stay true to your heart but don’t look back Stay true to your heart Aw you’ve given it time

Obsessed 05:13
Never one to light up a room on entry Figured it’s part of a charm and it’s nothing to shame Blow off my friends then cry about being lonely Let Friday ruin my Saturday yet again You were the one, you were the one who Told me to run, told me to run Give it a try, get out alive But I can’t be fun, you’re the only one I get a little bit obsessed but it’s ok, yeah it’s ok, but I do Met you at a party at the tail of teens The only one who didn’t stare straight through Hung myself out to dry til you let me in That’s when I knew I’d clip my wings, do anything, for you You were the one, you were the one who Told me to run, told me to run Give it a try, just have a life But I can’t be fun, you’re the only one I get a little bit obsessed but it’s ok, yeah it’s ok, but I do And maybe you’ll outgrow me Or maybe you’ll follow me down What happens when the love you give is greater than you receive?

Do you know the way to feelings I can’t say? Could you make it worse? Could you make it hurt? We could be ok but you let him stay No he’s not the one, it will come undone Give it a try? If you wanted me to Give it a try You should have talked to me but Give it a try He’s all you wanna be but This party’s a drag, I’m over the bag Just give it a rest, I’m an unwanted guest Put me on your list of hearts to haunt I’ll haunt you back Let’s not hesitate, stop before too late I’ve been burnt before, I’m all out of talk Give it a try? If you wanted me to Give it a try You should have talked to me but Give it a try He’s all you wanna be but This party’s a drag, I’m over the bag Just give it a rest, I’m an unwanted guest Put me on your list of hearts to haunt I’ll haunt you back We were never meant to last this long I’ll give you that Keep creeping up now Just give it a try

Secret 04:04
If you hear me can you steer me? Just for a while, let’s reconcile Sinking, I am sinking deep down Don’t give up on... Baby can you keep a secret? Take a second, change position Don’t give up on... Baby can you keep a secret? Still I don’t know why I just push the feeling down No I don’t know why I just push the feeling down

Do you want to ride your bike to my house? If you want to we can take the long route It’s not something we need to talk about That sunset guilt trip I could really do without Promise this time we won’t end up the same It won’t be easy but could we just pretend That ten years later nothing has changed I’m not ready to say goodbye again We could kiss the stars together, it doesn’t have to last forever I only wanted you to go because you said, you told me so You don’t know what it means for me to change the way I see I only came back to say I wish it didn’t end that way You can keep the heart from the heartbreak I don’t need to leave with a keepsake Not too late to say it’s too heavy Hold it in your arms when you’re ready

Stay With Me 04:55
It’s no better now you’re gone It’s no better on my own Even when you’re wrong, I feel like you’re the one who’s won Even when I’m wrong, you act like I’m the only one Stay with me, why don’t you Stay with me, cos I’m not done I’ve come undone Stay with me, why won’t you Stay with me, though it feels wrong You’re still the one It’s no better now you’re gone I feel nothing, I feel numb Even when you’re wrong, I feel like you’re the one who’s won Even when I’m wrong, you act like I’m the only one Stay with me, why don’t you Stay with me, cos I’m not done I’ve come undone Stay with me, why won’t you Stay with me, though it feels wrong You’re still the one If I met you in a different moment If I met you would I be this broken? If I met you would it all still be so hard?

I know I shouldn’t be thinking it, No I shouldn’t even feel at all What makes you live with so few regrets? You look calm as the ocean floor But can you give in, give in to me I know you didn’t wanna believe that I know Just as long as you Keep me under your spell just a little longer I know it’s been a while, no need to keep an eye on me I’m not a wanderer If I could remember why we even called it off Do you think I’d regret it half as much as I had thought? If I’d even thought... You’re trying to outrun it, but I can’t kiss a memory It’s just not for me You said you couldn’t do it, but you weren’t even trying then We should try again So can you give in, give in to me I know you didn’t wanna believe that I know Just as long as you Keep me under your spell just a little longer I know it’s been a while, no need to keep an eye on me I’m not a wanderer You know when I get out of here... Keep me under your spell just a little longer I know it’s been a while baby, you keep an eye on me I’m not a wanderer

Keep 04:37
If you’d said I’d still be here a year ago I would have told you telling lies is bad for souls Imagine all the stories left untold if we’d kept our wildest dreams on hold But you keep your cool, any colour I’d be a fool for any other Would I blow out your light to brighten mine? You say it’s sinful to be shy, well I’m in line Said “I wanna go to heaven but I’m scared of getting high” It’s not quite right But you keep your cool, any colour I’d be a fool for any other I’m gunna let you keep my love I know you wanna get it, I know you wanna get it

about

Hatchie Brisbane, Australia

Hatchie is the world of Harriette Pilbeam. Step inside her mind; a dreamy landscape where cascading synths, jangling guitars, propulsive rhythms and white noise undulate beneath irresistible pop melodies. Rather than focusing on the external world of her life in Brisbane, Pilbeam turns her gaze inwards, making a soundtrack out of her daydreams, setting her emotional life to song. ... more
