Halcyon Selects: Keep Shelly in Athens – Our Own Dream

Our favourite greek duo, Keep Shelly in Athens, keeps us surprised all the time and it seems that their success is both undeniable and unstoppable. This year started with some great news from them, after the announcement of their participation to the lineup of the Coachella Festival, one of the most important music festivals along with Glastonbury, singing the same day with some of the biggest names of the global music scene such as Radiohead, Bon Iver, The Shins, David Guetta, Noel Gallagher, Miike Snow and Feist. A few days ago, the duo announced their new US Tour -including a couple dates with St.Vincent and Tune-Yards-, plus a very special limited repress of their first two EPs and the release of their first official music video for the song “Our Own Dream”. Directed by Thanasis Tsimpinis, a promising new greek director who recently created a buzz with his short film “MINE”, the video perfectly visualises the beautiful and haunting atmosphere of the song, while Sharah’s unique presence is finally being highlighted, resulting to one of the best music videos we’ve seen by far this year.
