Hatchie, aka Australian Harriette Pilbeam, is skilled at taking familiar sounds, lyrics and song titles (how many songs have been written with titles like "Stay With Me" and "Secret"?), and turning them into something huge, cinematic, completely involving at the heart, mind and body level. This is never quite dance music, never quite singer-songwriter confessionals, never quite prom slow-dance balladry – yet it is very much all of those things, all of the time, and then some. Not shoegaze, not trip-hop, not Top 40, not folk, not New Wave – yet all of these. Her debut album Keepsake is synthpop evocative of romantic dreams, ambitions, and perhaps delusions, played as overwhelming and involving enough to transition from infatuation to obsession to a full-on state of doom. Decades collapse into each other, hearts tear each other apart. Keepsake contains nihilism and optimism at once. This tender, overwhelming pop music has a way of feeling like the soundtrack to the end of the world.
