Hatchie - "This Enchanted," a 2021 single on Secretly Canadian.

Brisbane, Australia-based artist Hatchie (real name: Harriette Pilbeam) has signed to the label Secretly Canadian, sharing her first new single since her 2019 dream-pop debut LP Keepsake. In a press release, she states today's KEXP Song of the Day "encapsulates everything I wanted to do moving forward from my first album."

She continues: "I started writing it with [producer] Jorge [Elbrecht] and [Hatchie guitarist] Joe [Agius] in February 2020 and completed it from afar in lockdown later in the year. We had been talking about making something dancey but shoegaze.”

“It’s one of the more lighthearted, lyrically vague songs of my new recordings about falling in love; it’s not a perfect relationship, but you’re enthralled by one another and it’s an easy love. It’s one of the most fun songs I’ve written, so it was a no-brainer to pick it as my first solo release in almost two years. It feels so right to be working with a label as exciting as Secretly as I step into new territory with Hatchie. I’ve been counting down the days until its release for a long time.“
