The swirling ambient sound of Keep Shelly in Athens (KSiA) captures that serene feeling you get on a gloomy, rainy day as your car glides over the slick city streets. With airy beats that are repetitive, but never trance-like, KSiA is an accessible and lighthearted entry into the world of down-tempo electronica. As enigmatic as they are talented, Keep Shelly in Athens is a Greek based duo signed to Forest Family Records. Fearing the trend of bands coasting more on their own hype than their actual talent, KSiA keep their cards close to their chest, focusing on their music, not their image. If their sold-out 2010 EP is any indication, it's a more than fair trade-off.
