Hatchie is the project of Australian musician Harriette Pilbeam. She previously played in the bands Babaganouj and Go Violets and on May 25 she is releasing her debut EP under the Hatchie name, Sugar & Spice, via Double Whammy. Now she has shared another song from it, “Sleep,” via a video for the song. Joe Agius directed the clip, which is a stylish video featuring Pilbeam performing the song with her band, and also has her hanging out in the clouds, amongst cardboard stars and a moon, and lying in bed, perhaps playing off the fact that her music is often described as dream-pop. Watch it below, followed by Hatchie’s upcoming tour dates.

Pilbeam had this to say about the song and video in a press release: “‘Sleep’ is about feeling frustrated with someone who can’t communicate their feelings. In this song I’m trying to coax someone into talking to me by any means necessary, even if it means visiting me in dreams. For the ‘Sleep’ video we decided to play on the idea that I’m trying to get someone to communicate with me in their sleep. We made a bunch of dreamy sets to focus on, like I’m talking to them in their dreams. At some points I’m really serious, at other points I’m almost teasing them because I’m so over trying to get them to talk.”

Previously we posted the video for Sugar & Spice‘s title track (which was one of our Songs of the Week). Hatchie has a shoegazer/dream-pop vibe, so it makes sense that in February Cocteau Twins’ Robin Guthrie remixed previous single “Sure.” Hatchie also previously shared videos for “Try” and “Sure.”
