Hibou – Hide Away

Does anybody here want to have a bet with us that Hibou (aka Peter Michel) will certainly be put under contract by Captured Tracks in the near future? The 19-year-old guy from Seattle was the former Craft Spells drummer and it seems that he treasured that experience. He released the precious Dunes EP last spring and he returned a couple of weeks ago with Hide Away, the incredible first single from the forthcoming debut LP, which will be released sometime in 2014.

He defines his sound as “ethereal surf poppy love” and this new song lives up to the description, thanks to airy, jangly guitars drowned in reverb, summery vibes and a melodic instinct that reminds us of Heavenly Beat.

We know that you’re making your move, Mike Sniper.
