Keane - 'Strangeland'
Keane are rather brilliant at being KeaneMore on Keane
6 / 10 On which Keane reach that point that all bands reach around about their mid-thirties/fourth record. You know, they’ve done the “radical departure” album, they’ve done the EP with a guest rapper… and now they’ve remembered what people loved about them in the first place, and thought, “Fuck it, let’s just do what we’re good at”. So here is the ultra-Keane album, with tinkling, histrionic, arena-ready piano motifs™, soaring, emotive vocals™ and songs called ‘Day Will Come’, ‘In Your Own Time’ and ‘Silenced By The Night’. Keane are rather brilliant at being Keane, and we all know what Keane are about, don’t we?
