Hatchie - Lights On
'Lights On' is a fantastic pop song. Hatchie has a remarkable voice and clearly knows her way around a tune. She's been knocking out quality material for five years now, and this is easily her most substantial and engaging work to date. But I spent too much time with greasy hair cascading over my face, drinking Newcastle Brown, and staring down at my army boots during the early 90s to not think that is essentially a poppier update of the Cocteau Twins and Curve's back catalogue. That isn't a criticism. They are some of my favourites. More of this, please.
