Keep Shelly in Athens

Keep Shelly in Athens is a chillwave duo out of Greece. The band is fronted by the soft, haunting vocals of Sarah P and backed by the dream-like production of RΠЯ. Well constructed like the hypnotic allure of Tycho, a fellow Chillwave artist, Keep Shelly in Athens roots itself in a cloudy, ethereal layer between classic downtempo and alternative rock.

Others have cited that they draw more specifically “an influence from Saint Etienne and Air, whereas Sarah P’s vocal style draws influence from Tracey Thorn and Nancy Sinatra.

I am not entirely sure I am onboard with those comparisons just yet, but you be the judge. (Refpoint: link) Following successful EPs, the band have finally released their first full length album, At Home. Check them out!
