Like your music to fit in a box? Then move along. Because the new album by Keep Shelly in Athens is a genrebuster.
I’ve heard it called synthpop and chillwave, and I guess that’s about right. There’s a pop beat. There are fingersnaps. The vocals are generally in the right register for pop music. But there’s so much more here than just that. It’s lush, rich, full of sound and atmosphere.
And it’s completely independent. The duo, from Greece, have made some singles available, below. Check it out, then buy it. Buying indie supports real people making real music!
