RIYL: Alvvays, Snail Mail, Cocteau Twins
Label: Double Double Whammy
First off, I know we’re a bit late on this one.¬† Brisbane chanteuse¬†Harriette Pilbeam dropped this infectious little E.P. back in May, a catastrophe of good tunes from an artist barely out of the gate.¬† At just 5 tracks, Sugar & Spice is¬†2018’s biggest teaser, over and done with in less than 20 minutes and leaving you pining for seconds and thirds.¬† Each track is packed to the brim with addicting hooks and lush layers loaded with summery reverb and¬†Harriette Pilbeam’s achingly sublime vocal harmonies.¬† Honestly can’t pick a favorite tune.¬† They’re all so damn good, damn it.¬† Damn.
Only 250 copies were made on electric blue and pink splatter vinyl, and somehow there are still a few copies left for us.¬† Don’t let this one slip by.¬† If you’re a fan of Cocteau Twins, Alvvays, Beach House and the rest, Hatchie is a perfect addition to the collection.¬† Check out the 5 tracks below!
UPDATE – The Bandcamp link has sold out, but you can still get a copy at¬†DDW’s website for $17.¬† The ‘buy’ link has been updated.
First press on electric blue with pink splatter. Limited to 250!
