It’s been a while since we’ve heard from Chelou, but about a week ago he released Halfway To Nowhere. This is a rather lovely indie track, very sparse and delicate. Halfway To Nowhere balances out perfectly the folk guitar and the electronic ambiance. Its beginning reminds us immediately of those jungle influenced sounds of Glass Animals. That rusty voice though… It really took us back to Nirvana and Kurt Cobain’s vocals.
Funny story: Chelou recorded Halfway To Nowhere lost in Colombia. His only friend was a guitar that counted with one string. Maya Jane Coles found merit in his work and invited him to record in her home studio, taking on production duties herself.
We are glad this single was brought to daylight as it’s one we can’t stop playing.
