Anyone seen Keane's new video "Atlantic"?

Has anyone watched this video yet? I haven't heard anyone mention it. The first time I watched it I wasn't sure if I liked the song, but every listen after I have started to like it more and more! Anyone else have thoughts?

I think they picked up a few things from U2 when they were on the road with them. Like: The melodies sound a little U2ish, the video reminded me of Vertigo, and the tracks that were around them looked like part of an ellipse. I like them alot, I just don't like it when artists try to resemble other artists.

^Ok the Atlantic video is set on a beach with a Jesus lookin guy who then gets taken away by the grim reaper....

...Your thinking of the video for Is It Any Wonder, which isn't anything like Vertigo video wise...and the tracks thing running around them looks nothing like an ellipse it looks like a giant slide for a hamster ball or something.

Welcome to popular music for the last....forever. You've got to start somewhere with a sound.

The video is a piece of crap.

The song, however, grew on me as it continued from its brooding beginning to the more soaring portions at the end. If this is any indication of the album, I'm very interested to see where the band went with their sound. Despite a lot of brooding, Hopes & Fears was still a very crisp, bouncy record.

Looking forward to the new one.

Yeah I agree the video itself was just too weird for my taste but I am loving the song, I can't wait for the album.

I really enjoyed the song. I think it's a good movement for them, their sound is changing a little bit. It'd be easy to get stuck in a rut with the sound on Hopes & Fears. Brooding is a perfect word for the track. Video was kind of creepy, not sure I understand the entire thing, but I don't watch videos often so I won't have to see it again most likely. I do like the track a lot though, and I'm really excited about the album.

And, no, the 'Is It Any Wonder' video's track looks nothing like an ellipse. That's got to be one of the worst observations I've ever seen on this site.

Oh why thank you for your input. I did however get the songs mixed up but, that does tend to happen when your sending kids off to school and making lunches and your trying to look human.

I saw Keane when the were with the band, I thought they were really good but, if you know your U2, the beginning of the song sounds a little like an Edge riff. And it my opinion anyway no reason to be rude!

I still think it resembles the ellipse staging.

Keane's new single

ht tp://www.save file.com/files/6089375

their new single "Is it any wonder?" if you haven't managed to listen to it...

The intro sounds a lot like Zoo Station, but it's a great song, I think...

Thanks for the link Acrobat_Al!

I definitely like the new direction Keane is going... I've gotten a little bored with Hopes & Fears... perhaps because it was everywhere for a long time.

Anyway, how much do videos count for these days anyway? I like the single and I'm looking forward to the new album next month!

Is it any wonder chorus riff reminds me of Even better than the real thing, as does the video with all the spinning.

I'm sure the thought police will straigthen that out...
