Keep Shelly In Athens - At Home

Enthralling yet chilled fare from Athens…
Keep Shelly In Athens - At Home

Hellenic duo Keep Shelly In Athens prove an intriguing proposition.

Their sound, an intoxicating swirl of dream pop, manages to remain upbeat despite there constantly being a nagging feeling of impending crisis.

Maybe it’s due to the other elements they draw upon. Beats on some tracks are given so much space they recall dubstep, and there’s a real leaning towards industrial’s sturm und drang on more than one occasion.

The vocals of singer Sarah P take ‘At Home’ to an altogether more ethereal plane and mean that, despite posing more questions than providing tangible answers, Keep Shelly In Athens are never anything less than enthralling.

8/10
