Sydney-based artist Hetticee has burst onto the scene with her latest track, Not Another Dinner Party.
Drawing inspiration from the likes of Mallrat, Julia Jacklin, and Lizzie McAlpine, Hetticee brings her unique blend of authenticity and catchiness to the forefront. This song showcases her impressive songwriting skills and undeniable talent, making it a noteworthy addition to the indie-pop genre. Let's dive deeper into what makes Not Another Dinner Party such a captivating musical experience.
"I didn’t have a song and also wasn’t planning on writing one, but I think the sentiment behind the phrase, where you blink and all of a sudden everyone around you is settling down and you’re not ready to, just really summed up how I was feeling at the time, and so I kept coming back to it." - Hettice
Produced by Matt Sampson, the mix strikes a perfect balance, allowing Hetticee's captivating vocals to shine while maintaining a cohesive and dynamic sound.
"Matt Sampson, who produced the track, has a natural talent at hearing and building these sonic worlds within songs... he took the reins and just smashed it out of the park. My favourite part is the dice shake in the second verse in the line "Missed the PSA on board games being fun"—that was all Matt though, so I’ll give him the credit!" - Hettice
Hetticee's authentic and relatable approach to storytelling makes this track an absolute must-listen for fans of indie-pop. With an exciting EP release lined up for October as well as a show in mid-July, Hetticee has proven herself as an artist to watch closely. Don’t miss out on experiencing the magic of Not Another Dinner Party, and be sure to keep an eye on Hetticee's musical journey.
