From CANADA •
Dublin-based indie pop artist Keeley presents 'You Never Made It That Far, the final video clip from her debut 'Brave Warrior' EP and a beautiful downtempo, trip hop, electro indie exploration of the dark subject matter she has become known for.
For 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.
This is the most electronic and darkest cut from the four-track EP, recently released via Dimple Discs, and follows on from the success of her current single 'The Glitter and The Glue', which has 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.
On August 11 (9pm GMT), Keeley will be live-streamed from The Workman’s Club as part of the 2021 Dublin Quays Festival via the Festival’s YouTube channel and Facebook. This is the band's first live appearance of 2021 and the first with new drummer Tim O’Donovan. The festival takes place until August 29 at four different venues, featuring 16 new and established Irish acts, including fellow Dimple Discs artists Sack and Eileen Gogan, as well as The Pale, Bitch Falcon, A Ritual Sea and Birds Of Olympus.
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).
Dimple Discs is a London label with deep Irish music connections. Founded in 2018 by The Undertones guitarist 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.
'Brave Warrior' is now available everywhere online, including Spotify and Bandcamp. Fans can look forward to a full-length album in 2022, as Keeley is already recording it at Darklands Audio in Dublin, where Fontaines D.C. also recorded their first album.
