Late last year, Ocean Hope, the Greek sibling project of Angeliki and Serafim Tsotsoni, captivated us with their debut EP, Chamber Dreams, a four-song set of modern berceuse-like compositions wandering between gloomy and romantic. The ambiguous nature of the tracks led to a number of producers and bedroom artists wanting to add their interpretations or edits of the songs resulting 20 varying reworks. Due to the fantastic quality of each, the duo’s label, Seattle-based Hush Hush Records, is set to offer them in two separate volumes, respectively named Chamber Dreams: Remixes, Vol. 1 & 2, with the first installment coming on August 19th and latter in early fall. As a part of Volume 1, fellow Greek outfit Keep Shelly in Athens reimagines “By Your Side” as a nostalgic, sun-blinding fantasy incorporating aerated synths laced with brilliant flashes of light, a somewhat antitheses to the forlorn emotions of original.
