Psychedelic indie artist KEELEY shares 'Never Here Always There’ live in Dublin
There is quite a buzz about Dublin-based psychedelic indie pop artist KEELEY and with good reason. Her debut 'Brave Warrior' EP, released by London-based UNDERTONES-backed label Dimple Discs, is a stunning offering with highly unique subject matter and a sound quite unlike anything currently gracing the music scene. These 4 tracks have received airplay in over 40 countries, including multiple spins on BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq show and on SiriusXM in the USA (including legendary DJ Rodney Bingenheimer’s show), reaching #1 on the Radio Indie Alliance Chart, a coalition over 100 radio stations broadcasting on four continents. Dublin-based indie pop artist Keeley presents the live performance of 'Never Here Always There', recorded at the Workman's Club as part of the Dublin Quays Festival, playing in support of their debut 'Brave Warrior' EP, recently released via Dimple Discs. Dimple Discs is a London label with deep Irish music connections. Founded in 2018 by The Undertones' Damian O'Neill and former Stereolab publicist Brian O'Neill, it has grown to encompass such artists as Cathal Coughlan (The Fatima Mansions, Microdisney), Eileen Gogan, Kev Hopper, Dragon Welding, Nick Haeffner, Telefis, Baby Shakes and SACK. Keeley also recently shared the video for 'You Never Made It That Far - a beautiful downtempo, trip hop, electro indie track that is the darkest cut from the EP.
This follows from lead track 'The Glitter and The Glue' and singles 'Last Words' and 'Never Here Always There', which have received airplay in over 40 countries including multiple spins on BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq show, play on SiriusXM in the USA (including legendary DJ Rodney Bingenheimer’s show) and has reached #1 on the Radio Indie Alliance Chart, a coalition over a hundred radio stations broadcasting on four continents. For the past five years, Keeley has been publishing 'The Keeley Chronicles' blog, dedicated to the harrowing and mystifying case of murdered German tourist Inga-Maria Hauser in 1988. Working closely with Northern Irish police, senior politicians and Inga’s legal representatives in Northern Ireland to advance and resolve this notorious case, she is keeping the memory of this beautiful and mysterious soul alive. 'Brave Warrior' is now available everywhere online, including Spotify and Bandcamp. Keeley is already recording her next album (out in 2022) at Darklands Audio in Dublin, where Fontaines D.C. also recorded their first album. On October 13, Keeley performs as headliner at Whelan's Main Room for the first time in 2021 with support from label-mate Dragon Welding (The Wolfounds' Andy Golding).
