ARTIST HARTLEY ENTERS A NEW CHAPTER
WITH SINGLE “BITTERSWEET” | OUT NOW
“Hartley is one of Warner Music’s most promising talents. She released her debut eponymously-named EP in January… and it’s gained serious traction, putting her at the forefront of the left-field pop scene.” – The AU Review
“Hartley is another young artist navigating this bountiful music scene and coming out the other end as an artist-on-the-rise.” – Pilerats
“Sonically there’s no one really doing what she’s doing in the local market.” – Thomas Bleach
Breakthrough Australian alt-pop writer/performer/producer Hartley burst into 2020 with the release of her fourth single ‘How It Feels’, that of which culminated in the release of her debut and self-titled EP at the end of Januaryand saw playlist additions across 17 different territories. Now, Hartley enters a new chapter with the release of her new single “Bittersweet”, out today via Warner Music Australia and available HERE.
Co-produced alongside Nina Jo Wilson aka Ninajirachi, mixed by George Nicholas (Wave Racer, Cosmo’s Midnight and Basenji) and mastered by Colin Leonard (Birds of Prey, Charli XCX and Icona Pop), “Bittersweet”showcases another side to Hartley, effortlessly blurring the lines between playful and emotive.
Speaking of the track, Hartley notes “I wrote Bittersweet about wanting something you know isn’t good for you – ignoring the signs and the ‘bitterness’ to continue on with the sweet parts for just a little longer.”
Hartley’s EP showcased her energetic debut single “Used To”, which arrived last August to critical acclaim, shortly followed by the dreamy “Mind”, the deeply personal “Own” and resolved in a brooding conclusion with “How It Feels”.
Since her debut, the young artist on the rise has since gone on to amass over three quarters of a million artist streams, earnt praise from the likes of Pilerats, the AU Review, Tone Deaf and created a name for herself with aninimitable blend of alternative, pop and electronic-infused production and ethereal vocals.
