Keep Shelly In Athens UK/EU Tour Starts This Week, Stream Maribel Remix

“Athens , Greece’s Keep Shelly in Athens make down-tempo, Balearic-tinged sounds that sound like what would happen if someone tried to remake Air’s Moon Safari to correspond with the present day’s fashions.” – Pitchfork

“If St Etienne evoke memories of an idyllic London, this boy-girl duo do the same for beach resorts from Ayia Napa to Ibiza” – The Guardian

“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

Following a rousing Coachella performance and US shows with St Vincent, Keep Shelly In Athens are about to embark on their first extensive UK/EU tour this week. Starting in Paris tomorrow (3rd May), the enigmatic Grecian electronic duo headline new London venue Birthdays on the 7th May as well as appearing at Camden Crawl, Sounds From The Other City and The Great Escape festivals before heading off to Scandinavia and beyond.

Additionally, Keep Shelly in Athens have released a stream of their remix for Nordic kindred spirits Maribel, hear ‘Jezebel Jive’ here

As previously announced KSiA are re-releasing their first two Forest Family EPs, ‘In Love With Dusk’ and ‘Our Own Dream’ as one release digitally as well as on vinyl. The double EP will be also available at the European shows as packaged by Plancha, with an exclusive new remix and original track ‘A Tear in My I’ and ‘Hauntin’ Me’ (on the CD version).

The Grecian downbeat-pop duo meander through their electronic salad days and R&B beats of yesteryear. Melding an Ibizan ethic with atmospheric synthesizing, KSiA continues to push the convention of electronic music to the brink, a challenge to the Balearic norm.
