Event on facebook
For fans of: DIIV, The Pains Of Being Pure At Heart, Real Estate
Amidst an atmosphere of melancholia, Hibou’s Peter Michel has thrown himself into a lifetime’s worth of writing, recording and touring belied by his young age. At just 17, the Seattle-based musician toured extensively with dream-pop outfit Craft Spells, and most recently met critical acclaim with his personal project, Hibou.
On Halve, Hibou’s third full-length album, Michel creates a characteristically ethereal record addressing the dichotomies between childhood and adulthood, self and society, authenticity and superficiality. The outcome is a work filled with swooning, hazy reflections on loss, love, nostalgia, and joy from a 10,000-foot view. Michel’s vocals comfortably twist from echoing whispers to punkish accusations; his guitar from dizzying surf hooks to lush 80s-inspired chords.
Midwinter Bonfire will support the night with his Moomin inspired synthpop. He’ll warm you up for a night filled with dancing
