Hibou - Dissolve
It's funny, it was only the other day that we were thinking to ourselves that it's been a while since we'd heard from Seattle native Hibou, whom we featured a few times on the blog back in 2013, and he goes and drops a new track on us out of the blue, with the promise of an album to follow in due course. Three epizeuxises for the power of positive thinking!
If you'd forgotten about Hibou in the intervening period, them "Dissolve" should bring you right back up to date, seeing as it follows the same jangly, surf-rock sounds that brought him to so many people's attention, whilst adding something a little bit different to the mix - just listen to the last minute of the song, where it appears the guitars have entered through some sort of wormhole and come out the other end it a weird yet somewhat pleasant manner.
"Dissolve" will be the lead track of Hibou's debut album, which is due for release on September 18th.
