Inspired by the unpredictable, momentary and quiet solitary beauty of the Pennine moors, hibernate began releasing music in 2009. Our approach is both abstract and melodic but always with a hint of melancholy. Using thoughtful and careful packaging, we release limited edition CD, vinyl LP and 3″ CDr plus we also put on the occasional gig too.
