Keep Shelly in Athens - "Our Own Dream"

Our very own Athens-based suberb-named (Κυψέλη στην Αθήνα) duo Keep Shelly in Athens have long been on Red Cup's radar due to their dreamy balearic (Aegean rather?) sound and mysterious low profile personna.  Hot off the heels of announcing a North American tour in November the duo just released "Our Own Dream", which is a slight departure from their previous work but may just be our favorite.  It's a darker affair, perhaps influenced from the Tri Angle 'ghost-hop' output, but with a delicate balearic veil, without any lack of their  signature airy vocals and bendy synths.  This is truly their own sound and we look forward to more tracks in this vein on their upcoming release on Forest Family Records due this fall.  Until then let's hope we can keep them in Athens a little bit longer so we can catch them live too...we missed that secret show at Bios.  Listen to "Our Own Dream" below:
