On her debut EP, Dreamland, Nashville's alt-pop alien Athena introduces listeners to a fantastical concept narrative woven through dark dance beats. Though the record tells the story of a fictional character, Dreamland, deals with very real themes: mental illness, trauma and vulnerability chief among them.

Combining haunting melodies with stabbing bass synths, MONSTER will delight fans of Halsey and Sylvan Esso alike.

Athena is a goddess from another world that has been stranded on Earth. She’s ready to take you on a journey through her dreamland on a quest to dance with your demons.

Athena’s music - both sinister and delicately magnificent - deftly straddles the line between light and dark. Her sticky electro pop sensibilities call to mind Halsey or Lorde, but her flirtations with the macabre and emotional exploration are akin to Imogen Heap and Florence + the Machine.

Caroline Shumate has been playing music since the mere age of 8 - teaching herself guitar, drums, bass, and piano. After putting down music after high school to focus on higher education, her passion for music overtook her and Shumate dropped out of college and moved to Nashville. Originally focusing on drums, the multi-instrumentalist had an epiphany while touring with another artist: she wanted to create her own music. After fronting a handful of bands, this is the year the Nashvillian is doing things for herself - making music with her own vision.

With years of working as a musician, and subsequently getting to know herself better, under her belt, Shumate is ready to take that leap and show the world who she really is. Under the moniker Stasney Mav, the singer-songwriter is showcasing her creativity rather than someone else’s vision.

“I was so focused on results in past projects that the only thing I wanted to focus on with this project is to set goals for myself and hit them,” Shumate explains. “This project is for the 14-year-old- me who stayed up until 3am practicing a guitar solo until it sounded exactly like the recording. It's for the 17-year-old-me who was told countless times ‘you're pretty good for a girl’ from some blowhard music store employee. It's for the 20-year-old-me who had no idea what she was doing with her life, she just knew she was miserable and needed to do music and left everything behind to do exactly that.”
