Gemma's new single "Miss U" from the upcoming full-length Feeling's Not A Tempo is now available everywhere! It's conversational, sparkly, and will definitely get caught in your head.
"[Douglass'] voice sounds absolutely magical here — the way she slips in and around all of these different attitudes: defiance and vulnerability and humor and resolution. The song is conversational but direct, and the twinkling fervor that Douglass and Gundel build up around those threads of thought is dreamy but solid." —Stereogum
"It’s a bouncy pop tune that finds vocalist Felicia Douglass keeping her subject at arm’s length: “I might miss you but I won’t show it,” she sings over skittering drums and swelling synths." —Paste Magazine
Hatchie has released a song and music video for "Stay With Me" —
which she refers to as a song for "those crying in the club moments."
"The yearning chorus of “Stay With Me,” punctuated with ethereal stabs of ‘90s synth,
is delicious in its desperation and incredibly catchy. It’s a promising second look at the
surprises Hatchie has in store on Keepsake." —Paste Magazine
"Stay With Me" is the second single from the upcoming full-length Keepsake, out June 21st!

Free Cake for Every Creature on their first tour
Dear friends, I’ve decided to end “free cake for every creature,” in goodwill & and gratitude for everything the project has given me. Both my pride in “The Bluest Star” & our recent European tour have beyond exceeded any hope or expectations I had for the band & it just feels right to end now, on a high note. I hope you’ll join us for our final two shows in NY & Philly (more info below). If you're in the midwest, we're also playing The Flyover Fest May 11 in Columbus.
I’m eager to move on to other projects, but playing with free cake was the best way I could have spent half my 20’s. I’ve learned so much about how I want to be as an artist and person, gotten to see a lot of our country and the world, and found my community among the smartest and weirdest creatures in the universe. Thank you so much for being part of it <3
You can keep updated with me over on instagram (@katiepbennett) for now. I'm slowly working on more music & longform writing projects. From Diane di Prima: “Looking at the sky, I know I will be a poet, and knowing that know what I will lose. Have only the dimmest sense of what I will gain. What I step into now. What might be mine. Embrace this new thing, my will.
