Seattle Times calls Hibou a “dream-pop songsmith”. He certainly lives up to the title in Something Familiar, an album depicting his mental health struggles. Hibou turns pain into pleasure through live drums, upbeat synths, and reflective lyrics. The song “Malison” blends a raw, heavy drumbeat with distorted vocals, resulting in a sound reminiscent of rock. On the other hand, “You Could Vanish Again” is much simpler. Harmonized vocals play over a singular synth, and Hibou sings heartbreaking lyrics such as “keep it all tucked away below the blue”. The song is tragic yet addictive, the sign of a true masterpiece. Throughout Something Familiar, Hibou showcases the beauty in desolation, intelligently portraying his personal struggles through magical music.
