Hometown: Brisbane, Australia
Genre: Indie Rock
Why We're Excited: Harriette Pilbeam crafts spangly-sweet, Australian-accented, utterly irresistible shoegaze pop under the name Hatchie, for which she conjures both the lilting charm of The Sundays and the hazy shimmer of the Cocteau Twins. "Sure" is essentially a sunbeam in song form.
