She left for London to study biology, and then, fatefully, spent a year on exchange in Melbourne, with an eye on the city’s famed music scene. Whilst studying, she interned at Milk! Records, from which she took DIY ideals, a strong sense of musical community, and a record deal. She assembled a crack local combo (Georgia Smith, Jessie L. Warren, Simon Reynolds), released the first self-produced, recorded and mixed Hachiku EP, and played countless shows around town; becoming a staple of the music scene she once looked at, longingly, from afar.
Hachiku are performing at Icelandic Airwaves and a German run of shows with Kevin Morby this month before heading to the US to support Courtney Barnett on her sold-out solo tour in January & February and at SXSW in March. Locally, you can catch Hachiku at the sold-out Milk! Xmas Party in December and at their January residency at The Retreat in Melbourne.
