Bibio – “Dye the Water Green”

homepage_large.8ebf10d9I adore Bibio. His hazy, swooning experimental pieces are songs that I always seem to fall for, and he manages to do it all while maintaining a sense of civility and unexpected beauty. Bibio is actually composed of one man, Stephen Wilkinson, but every time you listen to one of the amazing, melancholic songs that he has (and he has many), you feel such a deep sound that it seems as if every void was slowly being filled in yourself. It’s that powerful. The first song I heard by Bibio was the romantic, quirky song “Lover’s Carvings” and from that I can really tell that he has grown since then and gone on to create even more meaningful works. His latest EP, The Green EP, has this wonderful track “Dye the Water Green,” and the lonesome vocals and overpowering instrumentals really separate it from all the rest. There’s a sense of maturity and sentiment, and it shows off Bibio’s strong points.
