Keep Shelly in Athens "Our Own Dream"
One of the more adventurous outfits to fall under the admittedly wide-ranging genre tag that is "chillwave," Keep Shelly in Athens has a new 12" EP up its sleeve, and has shared this, the release's title track, to help spread the word. Having just as much in common with the dark, hip-hop influenced meanderings often found on the Tri Angle imprint as it does with the pair's past more Baleric-tinged endeavors, "Our Own Dream" seems to be a much more harrowing affair then we're used to hearing from the Grecian duo. But above the song's slow-brewing, ominous core there are still plenty of blissful melodies and heavenly pads to be found—albeit with a slightly darker tint—which is certainly not something we're going to start complaining about.
