I like Travis, Coldplay and Doves, but right now I find it hard to get excited about yet another wistful/melancholic British band.

I don't quite see the Radiohead comparisons somehow. Or even the Coldplay/Travis ones.

Muse sounds like Radiohead. Keane doesn't.

Embrace (that one song anyway) sounds like Coldplay. Keane doesn't.

I agree with Yertle, none of these comparisons make any sense to me.

They are named after a lady (Cherry Keane) who used to babysit Tom the singer.

I REALLY dont get the Radiohead comparision either - they are nothing like them. I can understand the coldplay one because of the piano but I still dont think they sound much like Coldplay or Travis, I think its refreshing to not have the sound overwhelmed with guitars - although I do love my guitar bands!

And Watch out for Thirteen Senses next (lol) you can tell that Keane have made it here because Thirteen Senses are being compared to Coldplday+Keane.

i think the travis comparison is due to the fact that keane's single that is being played on the radio sounds like a travis song.

I base my radiohead comment on the song I heard on the radio. it's got alot of piano and he sounds exactly like thom yorke. I don't know the name of the song. admittedly, I don't know what travis sounds like, but this sounded exactly like radiohead to me, minus guitars.

i like somewhere only we know and bedshaped, but despite my best efforts i havent managed to like the rest of the album, so overall theyre pretty boring. C-
better luck next time. and i really feel the album needs an acoustic song.. you know, A GUITAR!

I like them when they're on the radio, I have no interest in buying their album. I think they might be this year's Darkness.

I am in love with Bedshaped right now. I can't get enough of this song. I think it is absolutely beautiful.

And the only similar thing to Coldplay is the fact both bands play with a piano and to that I say big deal. I love Coldplay, Travis, Keane and pretty much any other band/artist that incorporates beautiful piano playing into their music.

I remember when Muse first came out, people absolutely HATED them because they sounded like Radiohead. Practically every review of Showbiz mentioned Radiohead. I Muse though. Can't blame them for having good taste. (I'm sure there are many people around here who would refute that though!)

Keane are alright. I think the comparisons to Travis are pretty on the mark.
