keep shelly in athens ride the fine line between chillwave and synthpop, and do so very, very well. the grecian duo will release their first album on a major label, at home, on september 17th. the darker, more brooding single “recollection” has already been floating around, but today we’ve been treated to “oostende,” a song as strangely beautiful as its name suggests. it’s actually a city in belgium; yeah, i had to look that up.
“oostende” appropriately premiered on gorilla vs. bear this morning, the blog that put out keep shelly in athens’ earlier material on their forest family label. thankfully, they don’t monopolize that embed code, so check out the track below.
