Apr 21, 2022Giving The World Away spins the all too familiar tales of coming-of-age gradually and overcoming obstacles, and it does so with assertiveness. It’s an album unafraid to break new ground, but not without holding onto Hatchie’s familiar musical personality.
Apr 22, 2022At its best, Giving the World Away locates the edge between noise and melody, carving out a pop core amid seemingly structureless arrangements. ... Occasionally, the deluge of instrumentation grates. ... Despite its flaws, Giving the World Away marks an exciting evolution for Hatchie.
Apr 26, 2022The album's aesthetics are vaguely mostly there, but their function feels overly superficial. Giving The World Away does raise the bar over Keepsake in that it explores a wider range of palettes (jangle pop, gazey noise pop, synth-pop) and backs itself with a more momentous set of beats, but this is largely undermined by Pitfall the Second: Hatchie the vocalist.

The synths are even more present now than on '19's Keepsake and the shoegaze that was so prevalent early on is now mixed with heavy dream pop, which I really adore. But, what is lost in the shuffle a bit is just how good Harriette's songwriting is. She is growing a lot as an artist and Giving The World Away is a nice step forward. The Rhythm will easily make my top 11 songs of '22 and gems like Quicksand, This Enchanted, GTWA, & Lights On just add to the beauty and quality of the album.… Expand
