London-based singer/songwriter Chelou returns with single ‘Out Of Sight’ via his own Concrete Dog Records imprint after enjoying a jam-packed 2018.
While finishing his debut full length album in the studio over the past year Chelou has also featured on tracks with Kojey Radical, released on Benji B’s Deviation label, and Maya Jane Coles’ sophomore LP, Take Flight. As well as touring extensively with festival performances across Europe, from Sziget (Hungary) to Wilderness (UK) and a long list of sold out headline shows across Europe. ‘Out Of Sight’, which will be released on November 30th, has proved a firm favorite amongst audiences at these live shows.
Written at a time of insecurity and uncertainty, the disillusioned Chelou sings:
“How low must you stoop, to bow before the thrown…… on your own.”
Producer Cam Blackwood (well-known for recent work with George Ezra, London Grammar & Florence & The Machine) attended a show in London late last year and after witnessing the reaction which included a full blown stage invasion he invited Chelou to his studio. Over the course of a few days they worked on ‘Out Of Sight’ to deliver the finished record you hear today.
The artwork and video for ‘Out Of Sight’ is a collaboration with LA-based illustrator and designer Robin Eisenberg.
The Camden born artist has garnered a dedicated, cult fan-base from many corners of the world. Two lo-fi EPs that were self-produced and released preceded a handful of singles including viral hit ‘Halfway To Nowhere’ which has been streamed over 30 million times. He’s performed in 18 countries to date and in 50+ cities.
