New Track: Keep Shelly in Athens – ‘Oostende’

Last month we raved wholeheartedly about, ‘Recollection‘, the first single from Keep Shelly in Athens‘ forthcoming Cascine debut, At Home. Well, now the downtempo Greek duo are back with ‘Oostende’: another slice of lofty dream pop with its head very much in the clouds.

Taking its title from the Belgian city of the same name, ‘Oostende’ begins with swashes of ocean-crushed chords and synthesized theremin. That is, until a churning beat enters the fray and elevates proceedings immensely: turning the track into a towering ballad of Cocteau-ian proportions.

At Home is available on Cascine from September 17.
