Track Of The Day – Hatchie – Stay With Me

Seems to be the law here that when Hatchie releases a single it gets Track Of The Day , but when the music is this good, well, it’s a shoo (gaze)-in really. However, ‘Stay With Me’ whilst retaining it’s intrinsic ‘Hatchieness’ is a slight departure from her shimmering, evocative dream pop embracing a hazier electronic pop sound. Not unlike Harriet Wheeler visiting an 80’s nightclub.

Of the song, Harriette Pilbeam says: “‘Stay With Me’ was written as a writing exercise in an effort to step away from my usual style into something more fun and dancey. We originally wrote it with someone else in mind, but realized it was the perfect fit for my album as I wanted to expand into a different sound. It became one of my favourite songs on the record because I’m a sucker for crying-in-the-club tracks.”

Hatchie’s debut album ‘Keepsake’ will be released on June 21st via Heavenly. Pre-order links here:
