Keep Shelly In Athens


Keep Shelly in Athens are a Greek chillwave duo from Athens. They formed in 2010, and were quickly signed to the vinyl imprint label of independent music blog Gorilla vs. Bear, Forest Family Records. In November of that year, they released their debut 12" EP, In Love with Dusk, which quickly sold out due to much internet hype. They are currently signed to Cascine Records, who released their debut full-length album in 2013.

The group was formed sometime in 2010 when a producer known only as RΠЯ started seeking out someone with whom to perform newly written songs. Through a mutual friend, Sarah P. was introduced to RΠЯ, and they soon began to perform together. The band name was conceived as a pun on Kypseli, a neighbourhood of Athens. The band have now toured North America and Europe as a four piece, and in 2012 played as a feature artist at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. On 17 January 2014, Sarah P. announced she was no longer in Keep Shelly in Athens. In March 2014 the band announced a new singer, Myrtha. In 2017, the band released a new LP, Philokalia, armed with another new singer, Jessica Bell. In 2021 the main member of Keep Shelly in Athens announces a new collaborative singles series with guest vocalists from around the world.
