“Flyaway” by Keep Shelly in Athens

Parts of “Flyaway” by Keep Shelly in Athens have a late 90s Everything But The Girl feel – mostly the sudden eruption of hi-hats and snare beats at the 57-second mark that juxtapose the relaxed, even lounge-y slow space-y 4-note riffs and breathy 2-lines of vocals that preceeded it, which are actually sandwiched by the staccato notes that the song began with.

Despite those staccato notes, Kelly P’s vocals keep the song leveled, like a moment of clarity in the middle of a cocaine binge.
