Keep Shelly In Athens – “Oostende” Video (Stereogum Premiere)
Greek synth-pop emoters Keep Shelly In Athens released At Home this year, but they aren’t finished culling great videos from the record’s exquisite songs. The latest, “Oostende,” is a mournfully epic letterboxed love story to match a mournfully epic song, an ’80s throwback that splits the difference between M83 and the Drive soundtrack. Directors Brendan Canty (not the guy from Fugazi) and Conal Thomson of production company Feel Good Lost flesh out the themes of distance and longing with a modern-day odyssey of sorts. It’ll tug the ol’ heartstrings a bit. Have a look.
At Home is out now via Cascine Records.
