Hibou

New Hibou track!

Today Hibou shares "Junipero Love", the brand new single from the forthcoming album Something Familiar, out March 2nd. "Junipero Love" was inspired by "San Junipero", the Emmy winning episode of Black Mirror's third season. "The contrast between the two worlds depicted in the episode hit very close to home for me," says Peter Michel, the force behind Hibou. "I often feel torn between a conscious state and losing a hold of my memories and who I am." Michel's ongoing battle with anxiety and depersonalization was a major factor in the songwriting behind Something Familiar as a whole, and as such he also found common ground with the anxieties of the episode's protagonist as she navigated two realities and a burgeoning relationship. With its "breezy and playful guitar lines and cozy synth swells," writes Seattle Weekly, "'Junipero Love' idyllically distills the warm dreaminess of San Junipero's digital beaches."
