Screw you Hibou, you’re making me look bad
As someone who is nineteen-years-old I feel exponentially jaded and bitter when a fellow nineteen-year-old is successful. Don’t they know there is no pressure to do anything of merit for several years? Don’t they know it’s still okay that we don’t have our shit together? Don’t they know they’re making the rest of us look like dropkicks because they had to sprint ahead in the marathon of achievement?
But this goddamn Seattleite solo artist Hibou didn’t get the memo, instead releasing his frustratingly good AA-side single Glow/Hollow last month. It hints at 80’s infused synth, distant electric drums, and a shitload of reverb. It’s charming yet sophisticated, faded indie-techno that’s fun and guiltless pleasure.
I would tell you to listen to his soundcloud clip, but I’m desperately trying to deny him success until I am of equal success. Tall poppies, sour grapes, yadda yadda whatever.
SCREW YOU HIBOU, STOP BEING GOOD UNTIL THE REST OF US CATCH-UP. QUIT MAKING ME LOOK BAD!
