Places revealed to those seeking resuscitation, rejuvenation, decompression, atonement. HIDDEN HOSPITALS’ iconic mark captures the band’s foundational vision: obscured within the double “H,” is a universal symbol for aid, while their sound is CPR for rock and roll’s dying aesthetic. HIDDEN HOSPITALS’ newest album, “Liars”, is the manifestation of a singular place, point in time, and frame of mind. The band’s fourth release is coming at you via SPARTAN RECORDS, hit them up today!
HATCHIE is the world of Harriette Pilbeam. To hear her music is to step inside her mind; a dreamy landscape where cascading synths, jangling guitars, propulsive rhythms and white noise undulate beneath undeniable and irresistible pop melodies. Rather than focusing on the external world of her daily life in Brisbane, Pilbeam instead turns her gaze inwards, making a soundtrack out of her daydreams, setting her emotional life to song. “Sugar & Spice” is the debut album from the Australian artist, and can be found over at DOUBLE DOUBLE WHAMMY!
