KEELEY Live at the Workman’s Cellar

KEELEY, fronted by singer/guitarist/songwriter Keeley Moss, launch debut LP Floating Above Everything Else with their ONLY Irish gig of 2023


“Seeing Everything”
28 April, 2023
(Dimple Discs)
The first single from the forthcoming debut album ‘Floating Above Everything Else’, to be released on digital services on April 28th.
“The songs range from golden shimmery atmospherics to punchy power tunes, born from darkness and loss, and elevated to a celebration” – Miki Berenyi (Lush, Piroshka)
On 30th June KEELEY, fronted by singer, guitarist, songwriter and enigmatic Dubliner Keeley Moss, release their debut album “Floating Above Everything Else” on Dimple Discs.
It’s a debut album brimming with songs that showcase the breadth of KEELEY’s songwriting, bristling with lush harmonies, muscular beats and inventive atmospherics, weaving gleefully between indie-rock sub-genres and further establishing Keeley Moss as one of Ireland’s most creative and visionary songwriters.
From the glorious haze of “Seeing Everything” to the riveting finale of “Shine A Light”, a blistering cover of Spiritualized’s 1992 epic, aided by mixes from veteran producer Paul Tipler (Stereolab, Placebo, The House Of Love), Keeley and producer Alan Maguire make sure each song is a confection, a box of musical chocolates stamped with a unique Irish swirl.
Upon hearing “Shine A Light” Jason Pierce (Spiritualized) exclaimed… “It’s always touching to hear someone put their own spin on one of my own efforts…and with so much energy and enthusiasm. It’s pretty massive”
As with all her songs, this set highlights Keeley’s ongoing fascination with the murder and short life of teenage German backpacker Inga Maria Hauser, who was brutally murdered in Northern Ireland in 1988 and whose case remains unsolved despite many promising leads pointing to the culprits. As an authority on the subject, Keeley recently appeared in “Murder In The Badlands“, a moving BBC documentary that further explores Inga Maria’s tragic demise, and a brand new film centered around Keeley’s involvement with the case is in development.
As Keeley herself notes…This album is dedicated to the memory and short life of German teenager Inga Maria Hauser. It’s an album that’s a journey in every sense. More than any other album I know it metaphorically and literally documents actual journeys – life journeys, train journeys, ferry journeys, the journey of a long-standing murder investigation, and the journey my own life has gone on in relation to it over the past seven years”.
To celebrate the release of “Floating Above Everything Else” KEELEY will be playing a series of intimate shows, with further shows to be announced shortly.
