Greek haze-pop duo Keep Shelly in Athens will release their debut album, At Home, on September 17th via Cascine Records. Following the sputtering lead single “Recollection”, comes “Oostende”, a sleeker and dreamier five-minute cut. Beneath a blanket of gushing, shimmering ’80s synths, singer Sarah P. quietly urges a lover to “Get on the train to shorten the distance…the distance”. Though meek and understated, her voice hits like a pang to the heart, giving the track — and all its magical effects — a real human touch.

At Home Tracklist:
01. Time Exists Only To Betray Us
02. Oostende
03. Recollection
04. Flyway
05. Higher
06. Madmen Love
07. Stay Away
08. Room 14 (I’m fine)
09. DIY
10. Knife
11. Sails
