Bio

Inspired by other DIY artists (think: Grimes, Perfume Genius and early CocoRosie), Hachiku, a.k.a Anika Ostendorf, 26, writes and produces dream pop with an an avant garde twist from whichever bedroom she is currently inhabiting.

Originally from Germany, 26-year old Ostendorf moved to Australia from London as a biology exchange student. In Melbourne, she found both a job and music community at Milk! Records and expanded her bedroom project into a band. Since releasing her self-titled debut EP in 2017, Hachiku has taken her catchy melodies, highly tasteful, textural guitar playing and shimmering walls of sound across the world touring with the likes of Courtney Barnett, The Breeders, Jose Gonzales, Jen Cloher and Snail Mail, Stella Donnelly, Aldous Harding and Hand Habits across the US, EU and Australia.

vast and intimate all at once. a big, beautiful, cinematic whirlpool you can't help but feel drawn to and swallowed up inside of.

Big and heavy atmosphere, paired with sultry, haunting and beautiful vocals. This would be perfect on the Atomic Blonde soundtrack!

Love the undulating shadowy pull to this one from Hachiku. She's taking us on an unexpectedly dark descent into her head.
