Hibou

Amidst an atmosphere of melancholia, 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. The sound Michel creates is a landscape filled with swooning, hazy reflections on loss, love, nostalgia, and joy from a 10,000 foot view. It pleads for you to stay in the moment while planting the seed that you will likely lose this memory as it slips into a misty wistfulness. His music is a testament to fixation as a cure for apathy, and the fantasies that emerge from a mind unmoored.

Hibou's new single, Désir

Hibou, the critically acclaimed dream-pop project of Seattle's Peter Michel, has released a lush new French language single Désir featuring French artist LUHA, available today at digital services everywhere.

"In the winter of 2020 Hibou performed at Supersonic, a venue in the 12th arrondissement of Paris," recalls Michel. "The show was one of those beautiful moments where I felt like I had made all the right choices to be on stage amongst such loving people. After our set, I was introduced to LUHA and was quickly drawn to her music."

"When the pandemic hit and I was unable to return to France, I began writing lyrics in French to aid me in my patience," he explained. "I'm thrilled to have had LUHA contribute to 'Désir'. Her presence sits at the core of the song." 19 Feb 2021
