Ahead of her debut UK dates, Brisbane’s Hatchie (aka Harriette Pilbeam) has released a fourth track along with its accompanying video form her debut Sugar & Spice EP, out on May 25th via the ever brilliant Heavenly Recordings.

Sleep is this synth driven slice of singalong (indie) pop, full of charm and catchy melodies, accomapnied with cascading synths, vocal harmonies and warm, lucid basslines. Pilbeam says of the track

“Sleep is about feeling frustrated with someone who can’t communicate their feelings,” she explains. “In this song I’m trying to coax someone into talking to me by any means necessary, even if it means visiting me in dreams.”

On the accompanying video she comments: “We decided to play on the idea that I’m trying to get someone to communicate with me in their sleep. We made a bunch of dreamy sets to focus on, like I’m talking to them in their dreams. At some points I’m really serious, at other points I’m almost teasing them because I’m so over trying to get them to talk.”
