In one of the greatest moves a band can make, chillwave Keep Shelly in Athens have released a song to honor the departure of their vocalist Sarah P.
It comes as something of a surprise the group is breaking up, especially after their release of the LP At Home in September, from which they provided us “Oostende.” At the same time, as Impose Magazine reports, the singer has her acting career to fall back on, and she’ll likely be pursuing this art now that she’s left the band.
Keep Shelly in Athens reports Sarah P. left on good terms, announcing the following:
Keep Shelly In Athens share a new track, ‘Old Time Glory’, in homage to singer Sarah P, who announced her departure from the band this past weekend, in order to focus on her other projects.
Sarah has been the vocalist for Keep Shelly In Athens since their inception in 2010, and her influence will always be treasured.
‘Old Time Glory’ is offered as a free download.
Moving forward, Keep Shelly In Athens will continue with a new singer – as well as occasional collaborations with guest vocalists. A new album will be announced later this year.
