So You Wanna Be A Pop Star, Hatchie?

Putting wannabe pop stars through their paces.

Being a pop star is a serious job. You can’t just walk through the door and get started. You need to have a proper interview first. This month’s applicant is Hatchie. The board will see you now.

What can you tell us about yourself?

I’m Harriette, I’m 25, and I’m currently in Melbourne finishing up my first album. 

Why do you want to be a pop star?

I don’t want to be a pop star!

How would your bandmates describe you?

Depending on the day – laid back, frantic, sensitive, angry, tired. 

What are your best and worst qualities?

I’m thoughtful, but I overthink. 

What is your biggest failure?

I can’t think of one, so I guess I still have that to look forward to! 

What accomplishment are you most proud of?

Probably playing some of the lineups we’re on overseas next year. Even just playing shows outside of Australia is something I’ve been working towards for a long time. 

Where do you see yourself in five years?

Maybe moving back to Brisbane to settle down after living elsewhere for a year or two. 

What is your salary expectation?

I’ll take anything! 

Hatchie will tour the UK with The Vaccines from 25th January.
