Sort of dreamy indie pop from Greece with a little bit of noise lurking in the background? I'm kind of captivated by this:

Found these guys on the "11 covers of 'Just Like Honey'" comp:

Was all, "Hm," then listened to the YouTube embed.

So, yeah, holy fuck. Dan and I are already agreed on this point. New album later in the year on Cascine.

Noted, noted...

got the EP when it came out and I like most of the tracks well enough when they pop u on shuffle but found it problematic to listen to the whole thing straight. Can't remember why. I should give it another shot.

They're kinda second rate electropop. Kinda indistinguishable from Bill Leeb's Delirium, with a lower production budget.

Er, Leeb spells his project Delerium.

Sanpaku, Wednesday, 27 February 2013 17:18 (four years ago) Permalink

That was unduly harsh. I think the issue I had with KSIA is one I have with a lot of electronic songcraft - the absence of emotional affect in the backing requires a bit stronger personality up front (not necessarily diva, just discernible personality) for my engagement. And it does sound like Delerium is their favorite band.

this remix is fab.

slightly concerned about the latent dyslexia this lot bring out in me though, i was sure they were called kelly sheep in athens...

Album's great, unsurprisingly.
