But then a familiar Fleetwood Mac style guitar peeks in through the background and begins plucking away at your soul. By the end of the 3:30 long track, you’re left motionless, with raw emotions left completely exposed and your body wanting nothing else to do but hit repeat.” Out Of Sight LP is due out next year via Chelou’s own Concrete Dog Records.

Kenneth Nixon on “Baggage Claim” ‘I’ve never been a fan of talking about the meaning behind a song to the songwriter, because it’s a songwriter’s goal usually to write a song that someone can relate to themselves. It’s funny, though, because when people hear this song, they’ll likely have a much different takeaway than what this song means to us. This song was written about the stranglehold that music, and moreover, the music industry had on us 4 years ago when we first considered walking away. Just the feeling of wanting to change one’s identity, everything about oneself, to have a fresh start. Yet every time we tried to distance ourselves from music, it was right there; threatening to pull us back under.’
