2014 Sprint Stage
Keep Shelly In Athens are a chillwave duo from Athens, Greece. 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, where they will release their debut full length world-wide on September 17.
The group was formed sometime in 2010 when a producer known only as RΠЯ started seeking out someone to perform newly written songs with. 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 a neighbourhood of Athens called Kypseli. The band have now toured N. America and Europe as a four piece, and in 2012 played as a feature artist at the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival. On 17th January 2014 Sarah P announced she was no longer in Keep Shelly In Athens.
