Hibou is the alias of 20 year old Seattleite Peter Michel.
Having spent a year touring as drummer for Captured Tracks-signed Craft Spells, Michel decided to take creative matters into his own hands and released debut AA-side “Glow”/”Hollow” at the beginning of 2013.
This was followed by debut EP “Dunes” in June, which he later supported with his debut West coast tour in August, and national tour in November. He has still played just a handful of shows in his native Seattle, including support slots for Islands and Someone Still Loves You Boris Yeltsin.
While the majority of his critical acclaim has come from the UK thus far, he has also hit #1 on KEXP’s Northwest Music Charts, and performed a live studio performance, before headlining their Audioasis night.
Today, Hibou debuts “Hide Away”, which will be featured in his upcoming full length album in 2014. Stream it now at Pitchfork.
