Flood has directed a video for Hibou‘s track ‘Above Us‘ ahead of the musician’s upcoming self-titled debut album release on September 18th. Check it out at the end of the article.
“The video he and his touring band have shared for album cut ‘Above Us’ strips away the song’s buoyant drum pattern and sticky guitar work, leaving behind a cascading piano melody and Michel’s gentle voice,” Flood remarks.
“Armed with nothing more than piano, bass, and acoustic guitar, and lit by the sunlight coming through the windows, the trio transform Michel’s parents’ living room into an intimate cafe space and reveal the expertly built structure that supports one of Hibou’s strongest songs.”
Hibou – better known to his folks as Peter Michel – was once a part of San Francisco indie band Craft Spells before he returned to Seattle to focus on solo work at the age of 18.
