Another Sunny Day with Hibou - An Interview

Hibou é Peter Michael em estúdio ou também conhecido por ser baterista do Craft Spells e com convidados em suas performances ao vivo.

Um delicado dreampop com conexões óbvias com os baluartes da Sarah Records, mas principalmente sua sonoridade remete a oitentistas maravilhosos como Go-Betweens e Chills.

Dunes, o ep de estréia é algo de encantador, cantarolando, e adocicado sem desandar em nenhum momento para o apelo mais brega.

Para dedicatórias de amor eterno, sem medo de ser piegas.

***** Interview with Hibou *****

Q. When did Hibou start? Tell us of the history...
A. Hibou has gone through phases. It used to be an entirely different project starting around 2009, finding its roots in tropical pop. While a few of those ideas and melodies have lingered through the years, I’ve now changed courses. From the beginning of 2013 onwards is the Hibou people are more aware of, although I can’t say it will stay as is.

Q: Who are your influences?
A. The Smiths, New Order, Another Sunny Day, Broadcast, AIR, National Geographic, Discovery Park…

Q. Make a list of the 5 best albums of all time…
A. 1. The Beatles - A Hard Day’s Night
2. Kanye West - The College Dropout
3. Paul Simon - Graceland
4. The Strokes - Is This It
5. Bob Dylan - Blonde on Blonde

Q. How do you feel playing live?
A. Perfect ~ it’s one of my favorite things to do. I don’t think stage fright’s ever really been a thing for me. There are a few occurrences where It’s definitely hit me out of the blue before going on stage, but once I’m up there it passes.

Q. How would you describe Hibou’s sound?
A. A lil’ dreamy, a lil’ surfy, a lil’ rock n’ roll.. very warm. I strive for that feeling of when you close your eyes in the sunlight and become much more aware of all the sounds around you.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording your songs.
A I record everything in my room. I don’t have any ‘nice’ equipment, if you will, except perhaps my guitar baby. Usually I just decide what tempo I want the song to be, then record bass, then guitar, then scrap bass and create a new bass line, then melody, then synths… not always though.

Q. Which new bands do you recommended?
A. Alvvays, BOD, Sloucher..

Q: Which band’s song would you love to cover?
A. Bright Eyes - Hot Knives

Q: What´s the plan for the future of Hibou?
A. Tour, tour, release album, tour, tour tour tour..

Q: Any parting words?
A. Galu, savo ‘lass a lalaith
