Biography

What colour is your soul? After fifteen years in rock ‘n’ roll and still only in her twenties, the colour of Charlotte Hatherley’s soul is a double rainbow beamed through a kaleidoscope and shot through a crystal prism. Since 2006, the year she strode away from the ten-million-album-selling Ash, her inner colour contrast has been turning, slowly, all the way up to 11; today, ...

Imagine if The Go-Go's, Melissa Auf der Maur, Throwing Muses, Weeping Tile and Crowsdell-era Shannon Wright all contributed DNA to produce a musical progeny, and you'd have some sense of what Charlotte Hatherley's solo album is like. She is bound to surprise more than a few fans of Ash, for while Ash's music is also very well written, catchy and appealing, it's nowhere near the level of weirdness of Grey Will Fade.

The one steady element is Hatherley's girlish voice, a likeable if unspectacular punk-pop voice perfectly suited to Ramones-style songs. If Hatherley has a limited voice, though, her technique is superb, with an especially appealing vibrato and a real sense of how to inhabit the lead vocal. The arrangements and songwriting, however, are all over the map. When I'd first put on leadoff track "Kim Wilde", I got lost in the labyrinthine time changes and modulations...and then found myself humming what I could remember of the tune for the next two weeks. A madcap pop masterpiece, to be sure, with thick blankets of guitar, a crashing beat and a deliciously cheesy keyboard line. And when was the last time you heard a pop hook with the word "juggernaut" in it? Certain songs are reminiscent of Lush and Sing-Sing in their moody melodicism, such as the seductive "Rescue Me" and the gorgeous wash of "Where I'm Calling From". "Stop"'s bizarre, discordant wall of sound is almost like Melissa Auf der Maur's solo record, and lead single "Summer" is a beautifully harmonized midtempo cooker with a killer stop-start chorus. The closest this album comes to carefree pop styles is the vintage Go-Go's beats of "Paragon" and "Bastardo", and even then, Hatherley's lyrics are far stranger than any of the above.

I can't understand why this little pop gem didn't receive more attention, at least here in Australia. I bought it on the strength of `Summer', one of my handful of "fell-in-love-with-it-instantly" tracks for 2005. But the rest of the album turned out to be great too- not one filler track- with a highlight being the hilarious `Bastardo'.

This is pop; but with its unusual keys, quirky key changes, unpredictable tempos, it is much more interesting musically than typical top-40 stuff. Few pop songs take a couple of listens before you `get' them.

I can't wait for her next album!

Like the other reviewer mentioned, Ash guitarist Charlotte Hatherley has concocted quite a quirky debut album in Grey Will Fade.Charlotte's quirky songwriting might remind you of a more upbeat Kristin Hersh (Throwing Muses,50FootWave), although her girlish vocals are more akin to Kim Deal or Juliana Hatfield. Grey Will Fade starts off with the poppy punk/new wave of "Kim Wilde" while the 2nd track, "Rescue Plan" takes it down a notch."Summer" is the perfect single, catchy, uptempo and cheery, and yet like "Kim Wilde" takes the listener on a rollercoaster of melodies.Its not all pop-rock though, the Bjork-inspired "Stop" and almost Mod-styled ballad "Down" show how versatile Charlotte can be as a guitarist and singer/songwriter.If you can find this in the States (its currently only an import) its definitely worth a listen.Fans of the Breeders, Auf Der Maur and the like will definitely want to listen to this.And, Charlotte dear, most Spanish boys are from Spain, not Mexico.xoxo.

With legs slightly splayed and an air of absolute cool, guitarist Charlotte Hatherley has always made for a splendid visual alternative to fellow bandmates Rick McMurray (the fat bespectacled drummer) and Mark Hamilton (the drunken blotchy bass player) when on stage with Ash. Her first solo recording away from the band is gallant, but hardly likely to see her leave Ash in favour of individual rock pursuits. Perhaps the English lass has forgotten the backlash against the slacker sounds of female fronted Britpop bands such as Sleeper, Echobelly and Elastica, but it's really no excuse to dish out this domesticated dose of tunes. Kicking off with UK single Kim Wilde (less fun than its poptastic `80s referencing name might suggest), Grey Will Fade finds Charlotte offering a light - and at times almost fragile - vocal that belies her heavy rock leanings in Ash. The erratic arrangement subtly indicates Hatherley's fear of failure: a feeling of `my first burst could be my last gasp' prevails as the guitarist kicks through as many chord changes as possible in Kim Wilde, although follow-up track Rescue Plan is a slower ride that works a little better. Triple J has taken to Charlotte's tune Summer, and it isn't too much of a stretch to see why. The vocalist has taken a leaf out of main Ash songwriter Tim Wheeler's book on this tune, with her inflections and guitar sequences uncannily reproducing the pop nous of Ash's classic Oh Yeah single without as much success. On tracks such as Stop and Why You Wanna?, no amount of vocal layers, chugging progressions and lyrical sweetness can conceal the fact that this is a pretty uneventful - and perhaps even conceited - affair, yet with Bastardo the storm suddenly breaks and the rainbow appears.Read more ›
