Calibre leans back into realms of jazz and blues on a captivating collaboration with Chelou. ‘Dissolve In The Rain’ is the merging of two artists both living the emotion of music, evoking a unique and encapsulating eight minute track.
‘Dissolve In The Rain’ started as a raw demo of Chelou’s guitar licks, abstract lyrics, and ethereal vocals, and it sat within a collection of tracks recorded a long time ago. Calibre, ever the experimentalist, took the most obscure track from Chelou’s demo pack connecting with the confessional, journal-esque lyrics of a man in discussion with himself about past woes and guilt. Calibre turned this woe into a meandering beauty.
Chelou – “‘Dissolve In The Rain’ is a discussion with myself and living in past woes, wanting to get out of the space and do it right, the lyrics akin to what you’d write in a journal. Lyrical emotion is something I’m not afraid to put down on a track. I’ve always been very exposed in my music. I’m a folk nerd and love guitar music, classic rock and americana, so from a weird set of demos that I sent him around four years ago, the idea that Calibre picked the most obscure (and that’s when I knew he got it!) and heard something in my acoustic music that sparked a transformation it into a track like this, has blown me away. The piano and harrowing pace is something that I would have never created, it’s fucking gold.”
