In 2020, Chelou retreated to a log cabin in deep Wales with a couple of friends, and Sugarloaf Mountain is the result. In between studio sessions, the group would go on walks including one to Sugarloaf Mountain. The track features field recordings from that walk as well as other nuggets – squeaking barn doors, the crackle of the fire… The release serves as a memento of the trip. Beautiful harp recordings collide with a (tastefully) chopped folk vocal, warm bass and deep drums. B-side ‘In The Meantime’ follows on March 10th.

Emerging in 2015 after leaking his bedroom produced track, ‘The Quiet,’ Chelou has not looked back. Highlights include ‘Halfway To Nowhere’ (produced by Maya Jane Coles) which now sits on 20 million plays on Youtube, sold out shows across the UK, Europe and US, and press support from the likes of Billboard, Rolling Stone, iD, Vogue (‘albums to listen to immediately’), The Wall Street Journal and more. Chelou has also had consistent radio support from BBC R1’s Annie Mac ‘Such a fan of Chelou…Gorgeous innit!’, Lauren Laverne and KCRW. Chelou is one of 10 UK artists to receive Youtube Foundry Fund 2020.
