Hatchie’s debut full-length consolidates her status as purveyor of nostalgic dream pop. Keepsake’s jangly guitars are situated along the Cranberries / Cocteau Twins axis, and its seductive pop nuggets imbued with understated potency.
The Australian’s airy vocals are multi-tracked syrup, a wistful complement to the hazy reverb.
With repeat listens, you may wear Hatchie’s emotions as your own.
Keepsake is the teen drama where every song is prom night, the shimmering soundtrack to your introspective reverie.
