Keep Shelly in Athens @ Lincoln Hall
After their appearance at Austin's Fun Fun Fun Fest, Greek electronic duo Keep Shelly in Athens have been on a North American tour with Body Language that brought them to Lincoln Hall on Monday (11/14). Chicago locals yourfeetstoobig opened the show. They conclude their tour tonight (11/18) at NYC's Bowery Ballroom.
According to Dio Kollias, who was at the Chicago show:
Although there were some technical difficulties at first, which kind of disrupted the flow, they were pretty chill about it and it ended up being a great show nonetheless, a bit edgier sounding with the live band then from their recordings, which I am not complaining about.
Keep Shelly in Athens recently announced that they'll follow the Our Own Dream EP, which came out earlier this month (we recently premiered a Blackbird Blackbird remix of the title track), with the Campus Martius EP, out December 5 via Planet Mu. You can stream the title track off the upcoming EP below.
Gorilla vs Bear also just premiered a video for KSIA's version of ABADABAD's "California Birds," which appeared on the Our Own Dream EP...
Presenting the most adorable music video ever, starring 2-year-old Lola Grainger in what is presumably her screen debut. Beautifully shot and edited by director Brendan Canty of Feel Good Lost. Keep Shelly in Athens' version of ABADABAD's "California Birds" is taken from their new Forest Family 12? EP Our Own Dream, and the song has also been a highlight of Keep Shelly's live set -- with Sarah throwing down some stirring lead vocals -- on their current North American tour. Not coincidentally, KSiA + ABADABAD play together this evening (along with Body Language) at The Bowery Ballroom in NYC:
You can watch that video, with more pictures from the Chicago show, and song stream below...
