Keep Shelly in Athens


Band EDM World




""Hauntin' Me" (Gorilla vs Bear)"

“ a shimmering, sexy-smooth Balearic pop dream, perfect for soundtracking all the lingering yearning and regret of your next late-night comedown.” - Gorilla vs Bear

"Keep Shelly in Athens, “Lazy Noon” (The Fader)"

"It s not just a mood of vacation relaxing over a clear calendar, but of not owning a calendar, not worrying that time exists." - The Fader

"Keep Shelly in Athens - Band of the day (The Guardian)"

...If St Etienne are about evoking memories of a London so idyllic it's almost illusory, Keep Shelly do the same for every European beach resort, from Ayia Napa to Ibiza. This is the sound of lack and loss, of what My Bloody Valentine termed "emptiness inside". It'll transform your recent holiday romance into the most resonant bliss imaginable." - The Guardian
