Keep Shelly In Athens – “Flyaway”

By Miles Bowe / August 29, 2013 - 11:13 am

After a few years of trickling out dreamy synth-pop the Athens- (Greece, not Georgia) based duo Keep Shelly In Athens have finally gotten their debut album off the ground. The tracks we’ve heard so far (“Oostende” and “Recollection” have been like dance-music comfort food; all gem-like synths, driving drums, and gorgeously manipulated vocals. This new one, “Flyaway,” opens with a moodier and colder tone than those previous tracks, especially once the drums and bass kick in. But the jittery groove gets balanced by Sarah P’s dependably lush vocals. Listen below.
