Hatchie Has Released a Dreamlike Video for ‘Quicksand’

Hatchie, an Australian dream pop musician, has released a video for the single ‘Quicksand’ off her second full-length album, ‘Giving The World Away.’ Dan Nigro, the producer and songwriter who collaborated with Olivia Rodrigo on her breakout hit ‘Drivers License’ and her debut album ‘Sour,’ co-wrote ‘Quicksand.’

Hatchie – actual name Harriette Pilbeam – lounges in a limousine as it travels around the city at night in the music video directed by Nathan Castiel. She sings in the chorus: “If I had everything I wanted would I want more? / Would I keep fighting if there’s nothing left to fight for? / Sometimes I feel like I’m just sinking into quicksand.”

Check out the video below:

‘Quicksand’ is the first single from Hatchie’s upcoming second full-length album, ‘Giving The World Away,’ which will be released on April 22 via Secretly Canadian/Ivy League. Jorge Elbrecht (who has worked with Sky Ferreira, Japanese Breakfast, and Wild Nothing) produced the album. Hatchie gave fans a sneak peek at the album last year with the tune ‘This Enchanted.’

‘Giving The World Away’ also incorporates percussion by Beach House drummer James Barone and “substantial involvement” from Hatchie’s longstanding collaborator and bandmate Joe Agius (who releases his own music through the solo project RINSE).

“There’s more to me than just writing songs about being in love or being heartbroken — there’s a bigger picture than that,” Pilbeam said in a statement about ‘Giving The World Away’. “This album really just feels like the beginning to me and scratching the surface – and even though it’s my third release as Hatchie, I feel like I’m rebooting from scratch.”
