Jonquil & Keep Shelly in Athens going on tour (dates)
by Bill Pearis
Oxford, UK band Jonquil kick off a tour at Glasslands on on Monday (4/2) with Keep Shelly in Athens in tow. Jonquil's new album, Point of Go, is out now on Dovecote records and brimming with melodic, bubbling, slightly angular pop. (A gentler Foals perhaps. They're from the same hometown.) You can stream it on Spotify and watch the video for "It's My Part" at the bottom of this post where you'll also find all tour dates.
Keep Shelly in Athens, meanwhile are releasing a combined version of their In Love with Dusk and Our Own Dreams EPs on one vinyl record that will hit stores April 13. Also worth checking out is their Campus Maritus from late last year.
Opening the Brooklyn show are Brooklyn's own New Moods who we just premiered a track by.
