Opening with dizzying lights on a dusty morning, the scene surrounding 'Oostende', the 2nd single from Keep Shelly in Athens' debut album, suddenly clears when a signature breakbeat cracks through and Sarah P's etherial voice pierces the track. Set in the Belgium city of Oostende, the band takes listeners on a journey through distant memories wrought with intense joy and deep sadness. 'Oostende' is a warm and reflective piece of pop music.
At Home will be released on Sept 17 with Cascine.
Keep Shelly in Athens joins Chad Valley on a co-headlining tour in North America this October. Full dates below.
