Postiljonen – All That We Had Is Lost (Keep Shelly In Athens remix)

Disregarding the obvious similarities with M83, Postiljonen’s album Skyer was a surprisingly cohesive and gorgeously sounding debut, on where especially “Atlantis” and its overuse of the saxophone (that even managed to put “Midnight City” to shame), stood out as one of the summer’s greatest anthems. The Swedish trio has continued to release singles from Skyer – the latest being “All That We Had Is Lost”, a track that borrows quite heavily from Whitney Houston’s “How Will I Know”. As part of a remix EP out next week, “All That We Had Is Lost” got considerably reworked by Keep Shelly In Athens, another synth-pop outfit with a fruitful year behind them – churning out a winning streak of excellent singles that preceded their Cascine released debut album.

By taking away the sunlit haze of the original and shower it with dark clouds and pouring rain, the Greek duo completely changes the scenery towards a sound much closely akin to their own austere aesthetics. And as a result, Keep Shelly In Athens has transformed one of the weakest cuts on Skyer into something substantially more thrilling.
