Brisbane's Hatchie has revealed the details of her debut album: it's called Keepsake and is due out on June 21st via Heavenly. Discussing the title of the album, Hatchie says:

“I’m not much of a nostalgic person when it comes to memories, but I do have a tendency to hold on to certain things, like tickets from the first time I went someplace on holiday,” says Hatchie in reflecting on the album’s title. “It made sense to me to call the record that, at a time when I’m going to probably end up with a lot of keepsakes—and in a way, this whole album is almost like a keepsake in itself.”

That desire to keep a shred of past pleasures and imbue small things with large feelings is also rife in the lead single 'Without A Blush'. The expansive dreampop meets power-pop of Hatchie's Sugar & Spice EP is perhaps even more potent and pillowy on this new track, as we wile away moments spent inside her head thinking back on a lost crush, wondering what could have been. It's all centred around that delicate moment of a longed-for kiss when the world seems to stop for a moment, which is captured in the knockout chorus of 'Without A Blush', where blurred guitars pan into wide angle and she wonders "if I could kiss you one more time, would that make everything alright?" It's a musical moment that you could lose yourself in for days, and we absolutely relate when she concludes "I didn't want to end the dream." Luckily, we can just play 'Without A Blush' again.
