Grecian duo, KEEP SHELLY IN ATHENS have just been added to the Fenway Recordings Session. Their stop at Brighton Music Hall for the series’ 148th show on November 17th will be part of their first North American tour.
Capturing down-tempo electronica is what this male-female duo do throughout their haunting indie-disco tracks. Vocalist Sarah P’s unstrained voice wraps you into her world of mystery, sorrow and loss. Described as “melancholy disco” by the Guardian, Keep Shelly In Athens are said to “gracefully combine hip-hop samples, aerial lounge music and hints of balearic house and downtempo, creating a unique and oh-so-catchy vibe of their own” (New Dusk).
In Love With Dusk their 6 song EP released in 2010 quickly sold out, allowing new material to develop resulting in “Hauntin’ Me”, the video for which you can see here. You may have caught a remix of their tunes by Memory Tapes or Maria Minerva, or perhaps checked out tracks they remixed from Blood Diamond to Porcelain Raft. Either way, this band’s creations will bring you what the NME calls a fascinating “dream shattered by devastatingly melancholy trumpet signs”. Their new EP, Our Own Dream, is set to be released this fall on Forest Family.
