Keane


Keane are an English rock band from Battle, East Sussex. They are recognized worldwide because, unlike most rock artists, they have largely resisted the use of guitars in their music, and because of Tom Chaplin's soft voice and falsetto. Keane's earlier work has a particular piano-based, melodic style that many have compared with Coldplay, members of whom they met when they were at school. Their third LP, Perfect Symmetry, embraces a wider range of electronic textures, including the use of guitars, which were first introduced staply in the band's work on the promotional tour that followed the Under the Iron Sea album.
