Hachiku

Hachiku is the brainchild of German bedroom-producer Anika Ostendorf, 25 who writes and produces her home-made dream pop (think: Grimes, Perfume Genius and early CocoRosie) from whichever bedroom she is currently inhabiting.

Hachiku’s self-recorded, self-mixed and self-titled debut EP was released on Australian label Milk! Records in June 2017. Since then Anika has taken her catchy melodies, highly tasteful, textural guitar playing and shimmering walls of sound across the world supporting Courtney Barnett on her 2020 USA solo tour, performing at Iceland Airwaves 2019 as well as touring with the likes of The Breeders, José González, Jen Cloher and Snail Mail.

Hachiku is due to release a debut LP ‘I’ll Probably Be Asleep’ on Milk! Records in October 2020.

‘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

Wominjeka (Welcome). We acknowledge the Yaluk-ut Weelam as the traditional custodians of the land on which we meet. Yaluk-ut Weelam means ‘people of the river camp’ and is connected with the coastal land at the head of Port Phillip Bay, extending from the Werribee River to Mordialloc. The Yaluk-ut Weelam are part of the Boon Wurrung, one of the five major language groups of the greater Kulin Nation. We pay our respects to the land, their ancestors and their elders—past, present and to the future.
