Music video: Keep Shelly in Athens – ABADABAD’s “California Birds”

Keep Shelly in Athens

Everybody knows that little girls love electronic versions of indie pop songs. At least that’s the impression Keep Shelly in Athens is under with their new video for their ABADABAD cover, “California Girls”. The track is a very dreamy, synth-heavy take on ABADABAD’s fairly lighthearted song. Keep Shelly in Athens certainly makes “California Birds” their own, replacing the twee bassline with an electro-beat and some crazy aftereffects.

The clip (directed by Feel Good Lost’s Brendan Canty) shows a 2-year-old Lola Grainger wandering around amongst shiny lights and graves for some reason. The Shelly cover comes from the band’s recent Our Own Dream EP from Forest Family Records. Check out the video below and ABADABAD’s original below that.
