Every Orchard Offering' is a collection of 10 songs that seek to make sense of a peripatetic existence between New Zealand and New York, where Keoghan relocated in 2013.
It's a series of personal vignettes about transience, sexuality, conceived gender roles, commitment, lust and modern reincarnation, combining a pop sensibility with contemporary R&B, electronic and orchestral elements. The album features guest spots from Hollie Fullbrook (Tiny Ruins), Chelsea Nikkel (Princess Chelsea), the Ruby Suns, Phoenix Foundation, and Lawrence Arabia.
"New Zealand singer Andrew Keoghan's background in opera and jazz certainly informs the sound of his recent "Stuck In Melodies." But the eerie electronic ballad, which will appear on Keoghan's forthcoming Every Orchid Offering, exists in a stylistic space of its own. If anything, it reminds me of David Bowie's similarly genreless ★ or the work of Kirin J Callinan, but possessed by an exquisite chamber-pop grace befitting Grizzly Bear or Dirty Projectors." - Steroegum
Praise for Arctic Tales Divide:
Immaculate baroque pop craftsmanship combined with Keoghan's enchanting vocals helped make this the top local album of the year' - The New Zealand Herald, 2011
'Arctic Tales Divide shows Keoghan to be a spectacular talent whose art pop straddles genres, building an elaborate studio concoction where his multi-instrumentalism is used to best advantage' - Metro
'I can't remember when I last heard a local debut more assured or sophisticated as this one' - Nick Bollinger, RNZ
