Hachiku acknowledge the Bunurong Boon Wurrung and Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung peoples of the Eastern Kulin Nation as the traditional custodians of the land on which this show takes place and pay our respects to their Elders past & present.

Mebourne dream pop outfit Hachiku released their debut album ‘I’ll Probably Be Asleep’ on Milk! Records in November 2020 and after two sold-out performances at Brunswick Music Festival earlier in the year are returning for a second launch at The Gasometer Hotel.

Expect a a full band performance showcasing old-time EP favourites, crowd sing-a-longs and fresh tunes off their new LP.

'Hachiku's ethereal and catchy melodies, highly tasteful, textural guitar playing and shimmering walls of sound create a unique brand of left of centre shoegaze, with each song taking the listener on a melodic journey' (THE MUSIC, Australia).

Hachiku is the brainchild of German-Australian producer Anika Ostendorf who writes and produces worldly indie rock with an alt-pop appeal. Hachiku released their debut LP 'I'll Probably Be Asleep' on Australian label Milk! Records in November 2020 to widespread critical acclaim and earned the prestigious title of Bandcamp’s ‘Album of the Day’. Hachiku first entered the Australian music scene with their self-recorded, self-mixed and self-titled debut EP in 2017. Since then Hachiku have steadily built a loyal, dedicated fanbase taking their catchy melodies, highly tasteful, textural guitar playing and shimmering walls of sound across the world supporting the likes of Jose Gonzales, The Breeders, and Courtney Barnett.

“Loss, long-distance romance, arguments with climate change deniers and bureaucratic immigration processes: On I’ll Probably Be Asleep, the debut album from dream pop artist Hachiku, even the topics usually relegated to inflammatory newspaper op-eds take on new depth and heart.” - NME

“Her music is fully deserving of support; fun, literate, whipsmart indie rock with an alt-pop appeal.” -CLASH Magazine

“It's an extraordinary album filled with poignant, playful and powerful songs.” - STACK Magazine
