If you haven’t yet picked up singer-songwriter Chelou’s The Quiet EP, his reworking of Nirvana’s “Aneurysm” should be reason enough to listen to this emerging artist’s dreamy indie pop.
Chelou’s “Aneurysm” version cuts out Nirvana’s badass grunge guitar intro but you really don’t miss it here. His breathy, drawn-out vocals are mellow for the acoustic melody Chelou has crafted.
As of last week, Chelou’s “Quietus” Bandcamp page was active, but no longer. You can still listen to “The Quiet” on Soundcloud, though, and Chelou’s “Aneurysm” is a free download on Bandcamp.
Chelou will be heading out on a European tour with All We Are, as well as supporting ex-Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore on April 30 in Paris. Check out the video for “The Quiet,” which involves some notebook scribbles of strange little beings that come alive.
