Our favourite Grecian duo, Keep Shelly In Athens, are releasing their next EP on Planet Mu on December 6th – and, judging by this new track from it, it is going to be ever so perfect to soundtrack the wintry months.
After a stuttering intro, the song kicks off when a startlingly beautiful piano loop is born just under a minute in. This is then accompanied by a bed of faint electronic drums and sparse atmospherics – before the echo-heavy vocals come in: haunting yet angelic. The Balearic pop pair seem to have taken a mature step in adding an emotional intensity to their staple synth-heavy sound, and it’s a welcome addition. This tune could melt the coldest of hearts.
Be sure to keep an eye on their tour plans, it’d be an experience not to miss.
