"“Take Five” CUIT 89.5 fm"

“Hibou’s crushing melodies composed of Tracey’s lovingly jazzy voice and Serge’s smooth guitar and electronic production sends a sound that subtly penetrates through the insincere, overly produced music that saturates the airwaves. Having jazz, electronic and rock influences with a hint of lyrical play makes Hibou move beyond traditional genre labels. Once you open your ears to Hibou, their music will carry you away and not let you go.”
- Mykelle, “Take Five” CIUT 89.5fm (December 14th, 2007)

"The Toronto Star"

“Their music has a bluesy, airy, electronic sound well-suited to a 3 a.m. rendezvous on a summer patio for many glasses of wine and small cigars.”

- Emily Mathieu, The Toronto Star (March 28, 2008)


"Hibou makes beautiful, elegant music. Their songs are classy, cool and so unique you're forced to pay attention. Their live performances are a showcase of supreme vocals and jazzy instrumentation."

Adrian Brijbassi -Toronto Star - Hibou


'Today's Vices' recorded in 'the Bakery' studio.
Available on iTunes:



Hibou’s music is for anyone who has ever seen the inside of a dark bar at last call or have ever felt like the Robyn or Metric were writing songs just for them.

Singer Tracey Adams-Thibaudeau’s voice is a warm gun polished with gin and tears. Her cynical sweet songwriting makes you feel as if she is extracting secrets from your inner 12-year-old’s diary and whispering them into the ear of your burned-out 9-to-5 commuter. On Hibou’s first album, ‘Today’s Vices’, Adams-Thibaudeau’s musical co-conspirator, Sergio Abegao coaxes the tones from her voice with his sweltering guitar, heart-pounding beats and BFF back-up vocals, as well as being the production genius behind all their musical arrangements.

Since they formed Hibou in 2007, they have been steady climbers in the Toronto indie music scene, having performed as live featured guests on radio stations CIUT and CKLU as well as playing to blissed-out crowds at numerous Toronto venues including: The Drake, The Gladstone, and as part of Toronto Pride 2009 and NXNE festival 2010 and 2011. They’ve also had the opportunity to play Stateside at The Ultra Music Festival in Miami as one of a very small handful of live performers at the massive, legendary electronic music festival.

Hibou’s music is visceral and consuming. It’s the perfect fusion of pretty melody and lyrics that will tear your heart out. It transcribes itself as goose bumps on your skin and demands to be played on repeat in your head.

Their debut album Today’s Vices is now available on iTunes:

Often compared to: Metric, Robyn, LaRoux, Adele, Everything but the Girl, Feist

“Synth-pop as eighties as you can get without a time machine. Resplendent with New Order basslines, Gary Numan synths and Blondie's 'Rapture' drum beats the duo are made for the twilight hours.” –NOW Toronto, May 2011

“Their music has a bluesy, airy, electronic sound well-suited to a 3 a.m. rendezvous on a summer patio for many glasses of wine and small cigars.”
