Ambient pop favorites Keep Shelly In Athens have been bouncing around from label to label, moving from Cascine, to Forest Family, and Planet Mu, before eventually landing now on Los Angeles imprint Friends Of Friends during its quiet ascension. With the move, the Greek duo will be debuting their long-awaited second full-length album Now I'm Ready, along with a string of headline tour dates.

Featured on the album is the titular 'Now I'm Ready' featuring little-known Ocean Hope. The effort may be a bit late in the nonsensical "song of the summer" annual conversation, but 'Now I'm Ready' proves to boast a hefty weight in the argument. 'Now I'm Ready' combines duo's refined chillwave demeanor with a booming pop element - courtesy of Ocean Hope's adoring guest spot. Through the course of the track it rises patient and evenly, ascending to a booming pulse that's both new for the band and easily cheerful.

Listen to 'Now I'm Ready' below and pre-order the album today on iTunes and Bandcamp before its October 16th release. Check out the duo's upcoming North American tour dates as well.
