Released in June via Heavenly recordings, debut album 'Keepsake' saw Harriette Pilbeam deliver a kaleidoscopic sonic palette, drawing out distinct moods and tones, revealing her depth and imagination as a musician and songwriter. The record serves as a document of a particularly kinetic moment in her life.
"With this being the final video from my album, I wanted to close the year with something natural and stripped back in comparison to the studio sets and intense lighting we’d worked with for earlier releases" explains Pilbeam. "Her Own Heart is about moving forward and being happy with yourself, so we thought the video should just be me, happy and alone."

Hatchie and her band kicked off 2019 supporting The Vaccines on tour across the UK and have barely let their feet touch the ground since. They've played shows across the world including headline tours in Europe, North America and Australia, and dates with bands such as Japanese Breakfast, Alvvays and Girlpool. Now, as the year comes to a close, and with various prestigious award nominations back home in Australia, they wind down for the year and prepare for the next chapter in 2020.
