Indie singer-songwriter Hatchie is bringing her dreamy synth-pop back to home shores with a string of dates announced for the national Keepsake tour.

Since releasing her debut single Try in 2017 and the following EP Sugar & Spice only last year, Hatchie has headlined internationally, played SXSW and warmed the stages for the likes of Beach House, Death Cab for Cutie, and Kylie Minogue.

Now her national tour will bring her to cities Brisbane, Sydney, Fremantle, Adelaide and Melbourne.

Chatting to Happy earlier this month, Hatchie shares her feelings towards the album title and process. Covering themes such as nostalgia and friendship, “the album is a keepsake for me, both physically and emotionally”.

Keepsake acts as a documentation of particularly potent moments in her life, each track a significant memory or moment etched onto record.  Having worked consciously to evolve her sound, the new album was a process of experimentation with writing and production techniques, sounds and textures. Hatchie wanted to “break out and explore different sounds… and keep everything open“.

Hatchie has been captivating audiences with her synth dreamscapes and liquid vocals; this album is a testament to pushing the super pop boundaries and showcases a more mature lyricism from the singer-songwriter.
