Hatchling is a synthpunk threesome with a reputation for scorching, energetic (and borderline insane) live performances and a love for catchy, adrenaline-fueled pop, harsh synths and a tongue-in-cheek attitude. Hatchling proves you don’t need guitars to tear the place down.
Hatchling’s new EP ‘ALPHA’ is here, oozing with adrenaline and catchy as f*ck. Clocking in with six tracks at 16 minutes, this fast and furious synthpunk romp is brimming with filthy synthesizer hooks, shout-along-pop and sci-fi extravanagza. ‘ALPHA’ is angry but hopeful, frustrated but witty. It’s Doctor Who, Aliens, Akira and Spaceballs all in one.
This limited cd-version contains the previous download-only single "Holly" as an extra bonus track. Enjoy.
