Keep Shelly In Athens releases their first single since Myrtha became new lead singer of the band. Vocals and melody are both enticing and haunting, you’ll want to hear this!
This new single from Keep Shelly In Athens will extract you from any current situation you may be in, and take you on a haunting, effervescent, mystic journey. The combination of the unique melodies with new member Myrtha’s smooth vocals is a new and beautiful sound you’ll all want to hear. Earlier this year, former lead singer Sarah P. left the band as discussed in our earlier articles. After Sarah P. offered her contributions to the band with several singles and EPs, and album At Home, since 2010, she decided to pursue other passions outside of music making. The singer had an acting career that she wanted to explore, so she left the band on good terms as she went to fulfill other dreams. The band mentions that her influence would always be treasured, confirming that the parting ended in good spirits. New lead singer Myrtha will not disappoint, however. Consequence of Sound’s article claims that she “complements Keep Shelly In Athens’ wistful, ’80’s inspired brand of pop,” and we couldn’t agree more. The echoing introduction of guitars begins, bringing an easy melody, where the beat soon follows, giving that ’80s music vibe we all adore. When Myrtha’s vocals are added, it gives that floating melody an even more euphoric aspect that can’t go unnoticed. The new sound is truly magnificent, leaving us in anxious anticipation for what’s to come! Make sure you hear this one!
