Who is it?

Over the past years Greek producer RΠЯ changed the vocalist at his side more than once but most importantly: Dreamy pop outfit KEEP SHELLY IN ATHENS is still very much alive in 2017, despite all those changes and the end of the short-living chillwave hype a few years ago. Leave In Silence brings us new leading lady Jessica Bell and reintroduces a sound that takes us right back to the feeling of the duo’s early days.

Why should you listen to it?

Leave In Silence unfolds its shimmering beauty with a slow groove, a complex but also floating construction of synthesizer sounds and Bell’s delicate vocals on top, making it sound like a psychedelic fever dream. It’s the perfect chilled-out summer tune we can use right now and to be honest, it’s quite nice to have that sort of sweet 2010/2011 ‘chillwave’ sound back after a decent break, don’t you agree?

What’s next?

The song marks just a first step in the comeback of KEEP SHELLY IN ATHENS. A full-length LP called Philokalia arrives on September 29 via Athenian Aura Recordings and we surely look forward to it.

Everyday we’re adding NOTHING BUT HOPE AND PASSION‘s Daily Tune to our ongoing Spotify playlist, packed with all the hidden treasures by those talented newcomers you need to know. Listen and follow right here.
