Sussex-based singer/songwriter Hetty Clark melds spacious soundscapes and riveting vocal emotion, embracing an inventive vein of downtempo electronic pop. Her songs are often understated, emitting deeply hypnotic qualities. Hetty is also inspired by raw, reverb-drenched sounds, from artists such as The xx, London Grammar and James Blake.
Recently moving to Sussex after a stint in Los Angeles, Hetty has a multitude of releases on the near horizon. Her new track “High of You” was co-created with composer Guy Jackson in London and mixed in Brighton by Olly Shelton, a Brighton-based producer who is also one-half of the pop duo PELA. The track draws comparisons to Kate Bush in its spaciously enveloping mystique and powerful vocal performance.
Another upcoming single, “Almost Anything,” builds on tender vocals and delicate piano, expanding into a lush dream-pop allure with serene synths and guitars.
Finding inspiration from catchy house-pop bands such as Sofi Tucker, Hetty’s Los Angeles collaborations included work with Ned Douglas (engineer for Dave Stewart), writing tracks under The Dot And The Line. London dance label Perfect Havoc also released a remix from the duo: Norwegian DJ MODES' remix of the track "Hiding the Truth."
Hetty writes to decompress, and to turn a mood into a sound. There is an alchemy to it. Writing songs is like taking little snapshots of life. Like photos, songs are often private and not worth framing, but sometimes, something special can occur in a song which you feel is worth sharing.
Hetty’s solo material and previous projects have drawn praise from outlets such as Atwood Magazine, Obscure Sound, Unheard Gems, Vehlinggo, antiMusic, and more.
She also is a freelance writer, with a focus in the cannabis and health/wellness space.
