Please give a warm welcome to Mirah, a legendary and versatile voice in independent pop for the last two decades. Mirah began her career by recording a pair of lo-fi EPs in the late 1990s, eventually releasing her debut record You Think It’s Like This But Really It’s Like This on Olympia Washington's independent label K Records. Mirah helped define the DIY pop scene, going on to release an impressive collection of solo records and countless collaborations. Mirah is a massive influence to the artists we know and love on Double Double Whammy, it’s an honor to welcome her to the family. Keep your eyes peeled for more Mirah news coming your way this year :)

The video for "Her Own Heart," the last from Hatchie's debut full-length, Keepsake, is out now! Harriette says about the video - "I wanted to close the year with something natural and stripped back in comparison to the studio sets and intense lighting we’d worked with for earlier releases. ‘Her Own Heart’ is about moving forward and being happy with yourself, so we thought the video should just be me, happy and alone.”
"Harriette Pilbeam delivered a certified Album of the Year contender in her June dream-pop opus Keepsake. That debut LP has given us several 2019 highlights, and now Hatchie puts a mighty bow on the year with a video for her space-gazing pop lullaby 'Her Own Heart'" - Vanyaland
