Shelly and Rotem: Somethings

Shelly Levy and Rotem Frimer are the duo behind the phenomenon that is “Shelly and Rotem“. Subtle and surprising sonic additions to a guitar/keyboard core create an innovative sound world, with a feel that is part indie, part minimalism. Collaborating since 2012, after meeting at Alon High School of the Arts, they have developed a repertoire of hauntingly beautiful original songs.

Their mutual love of the song “Flume” by Bon Iver first brought them together, and they now draw from a vast stylistic palette that combines the folk vibe of Joni Mitchell, Radiohead’s harmony, the lyrical sadness of The Smiths and James Blake’s beats. But the soul of Shelly and Rotem’s sound is in the interplay between their unique voices and their instrumental innovations – a first of its kind in Israel.

Shelly and Rotem: Somethings Lyrics:
Some things can change
But they don’t go away
Keep it real in my brain
Live it through every day

Some things can change
But they do leave a stain
Live it through every day
Keep it real in my brain

Worn out
Sold out
Pouring stupid pop songs out
Had I known you were there
I’d probably have gone insane

I was there two
In the deep blue
Electronic music night
You were there two
Didn’t see you
For the first time of my life

Some things can change
But they do live a stain
Live it through every day
Keep it real in my brain
Keep it real in my brain
Keep it real in my brain

I was there two
In the deep blue
Electronic music night
You were there two
Didn’t see you
For the first time of my life

When he was gone I still wanted to exist
Swore I’d be making the worst of it
When he was gone I just took another hit
Swore I’d be never again complete
