Keep Shelly in Athens - 'Madmen Love' [Track of the Day]
Listen to Greek outfit Keep Shelly in Athens' new single 'Madmen Love'. The song shows off a new dramatic side to the group, yet they're still able to showcase their signature dreamy touches, albeit in a more aggressive sense. The single is out now digitally, and on a one-time pressing of 300 7" singles via sixteen tambourines.
The track is taken from their as yet unnamed album, which is due to be released this July through Cascine.
With a sensual sound, the original grinds onward, peppered with popping bass and a balladic beat with a perspiring rat-tat and the sharp inhalations of sheer open hi-hats. [read more]
