Chelou Debuts Trippy, Space-Traveling 'Out Of Sight' Video: Exclusive

The video was drawn by Robin Eisenberg.

London-based singer-songwriter Chelou's latest track, a glistening psych-pop lava lamp called "Out of Sight," arrives today (Dec. 4) with a seriously awesome animated video.

It's the work of the Los Angeles artist Robin Eisenberg, who's known for her neon-skinned, space-traveling femmes and candy-coated, intergalactic backdrops (she also used to play with the noise pop band Crocodiles). Along with animator Kris Baldwin, Eisenberg sees the "Out of Sight" heroine through a psychedelic space city, a Star Wars Cantina-like bar scene, and a heart-pounding closing sequence as the beat picks up around the song's two-thirds mark.

This isn't the first time Chelou has worked with an awesome illustrator. The video for his 2016 breakthrough single "Halfway to Nowhere" was done by the like-minded artist Polly Nor

Chelou, a purveyor of loopy guitars and entrancing melodies, has been releasing buzzy singles and EPs since 2014, and is gearing up to release his debut full length in 2019. The LP is titled Out Of Sight and its due next year on his own imprint, Concrete Dog Records.
