Erawan is the project of London-based Hattie Marsh. The past years have seen her play over a hundred shows, from small local grassroot pubs to big capacity venues like Shepherd’s Bush Empire and festivals like Glastonbury and Meltdown, where she was personally booked to perform by The Cure ́s frontman Robert Smith. She is also a regular act at Sofar Sounds and has played around the UK and Europe as well as in her native Thailand.
When her father left her at the age of seven, Erawan not only kept his guitar, which would become her second voice over the years but also kept him as a recurring figure in her songs, joined by other people she has met during the last years.
In her music, she re-enacts her relationships with these characters, especially when she is on stage. People in the audience have described her performances as “painting with her voice” and “theatrical”, where she half sings and half talks to tell a story. It is a form of communication for when words alone fail – while she has often felt that trauma are preventing her from being heard when she is talking, she resorts to writing intimate and honest songs as compensation.
The artist’s name ‘Erawan’ is the Thai name of the three-headed elephant, which represents the three major gods in Hindu mythology: Brahma the creator, Vishnu the keeper, and Mahesh the destroyer. Growing from Hattie Marsh into Erawan means also accepting that the three gods, the creator, keeper, and destroyer, are part of her as an artist.
Erawan’s debut ‘Speak’ came out in July 2020, produced by Danny Allin (Laura Mvula, Labrynth, Emeli Sandé) ‘White Noise ́ on the 30th of September and followed by ‘Touch Me’’ on the 24th March 2021. All these songs have been played repeatedly on BBC Introducing Norfolk, where she was also invited for an interview with Kitty Perrin.

 

Tell us how you build up the tune for this song.
I wrote this song the last time I was in Thailand (nearly three years ago). I just came out of a four-year relationship and I was experiencing single life for the very first time ever (I was in relationships since the age of fifteen). I didn’t realize what was out there. Strangely this song has come out at such great timing. I am single again, but this time it’s a healthy mindset. I love being in a relationship with me.

 

Tell us how fans are reacting to your music.
So far so good! I have had so much love and positivity. I feel very blessed.

 

Tell us any interesting experience in your music career that is significant.
Well, Glastonbury was pretty nuts!

 

Tell us how you come across the lyrics of this song.
I really don’t know. I like shocking and making people laugh. So I guess I always have that in mind when writing a song. Dynamics.

 

Tell us what triggers your creativity.
Interesting characters and stories…

 

Tell us how you generate musical ideas for your composition.
I really like dark cinematic sounds. Think David Lynch or something that just gets under your skin.

 

Tell us your greatest song and state the reason.
It changes all the time. Right now I really love ‘You Want it Darker’ by Leonard Cohen. My producer showed me and I remember it giving me goosebumps. The song was a part of his last album before he died. He was ready.

 

Discuss how you compose this song.
Sun, guitar, Thai food, and beer…

 

Elaborate on the song.
No planning for this. It just came out.
