Although I haven’t been listening to Hip Hatchet as long as some of you, I have become extremely connected to their albums and comforted by Philippe Bronchtein’s sturdy voice. So, it really comes as no surprise that I’m soothed by his warm vocals on Hip Hatchet’s new song, “Sing Me a Reprise”, from their upcoming album, Joy and Better Days, out April 10. Written when Philippe relocated from Vermont to Portland, the song deals with transition and the memories of home and relationships. The combination of Philippe’s masterful songwriting and deep, wistful performance makes for an exceptional song. It’s a sad song that has greatly improved my evening.
