Hatch Takes A Ticket

Today, straight from the operating room, Hatch (Facebook, Soundcloud) delivers his interpretation of Tracey Chapman’s, “Fast Car.” The track is cleverly dissected and born anew in his trademark ‘Rehatched’ style. Managing to capture both the unyielding optimism and sadness of the original, Hatch takes an unexpected turn production wise resulting in a minty fresh cover. One can only fantasize about how the bass would sound live, while at home the drum work is the real show stopper.

Here is what Hatch had to say about the track, “I checked out the interviews that Chapman did where she explained the place she felt Fast Car came from. Its all about breaking out of a place of repression and poverty not just in a physical sense but also overcoming internal limitations. Both of which can be momentarily resolved by getting in your car, simultaneously to no where and everywhere.” Production wise he says, “I wanted to juxtapose that with something that brings an uplifting vibe and works on the dance floor too, whilst still maintaining the warm familiarity of the song.”
