Anyone heard of Keane?

They are coming to D.C. next month and I heard that they are pretty big in the U.K. I checked their website at www.keaneband.com and their songs are pretty cool.

Has anyone heard of them or, better yet, seen them live?

Thanks!

I've definitely heard of them. They're gaining steam here in America, but it's hard because Americans don't necessarily know how to classify a quiet British band w/o comparing them to Coldplay. Snow Patrol have the same thing, and I think they are fabulous and underappreciated here.

That said, Keane make beautiful music and you should definitely go to their show!

I have their album but didn't see them.

I like what I heard, though.

I don't like them, most people do. Especially U2 fans.
Dalton's right. They're just another Travis-esque band. I can send you some MP3s if you want to hear some of their work.

Thanks, I would really appreciate it if you could send me some MP3! Could you send to pablo_verra@hotmail.com?

I also just bought the tickets since I liked the snippets I was able to hear on the Web. Plus, they were $25 for GAs in a little club we have here in D.C. (that holds like 800 people), so I guess it will be an intimate function. Erasure is coming to the same place a couple of weeks later.

Thanks again.

Pablo

Because I like to know new music, sometimes I fail, Somewhere Only We Know was a good single, I supposed that the album would be... but is the same song again and again, of course this is just my opinion

I found them boring as well.
Somewhere Only We Know was the best song on the album...

One of those 'one good song' albums for me.

Hmmm, now I am having second thoughts.

But of course, many people also consider Coldplay as quite boring and repetitive.

See, I love Coldplay and don't find them boring at all.

Jack had it right when he said all the songs sound the same on the Keane album.

ooooooh! Harsh!
Keane are miles better than Travis - even with only 1 album under their belts. Ive seen em' live 4 times now - they are fantastic.

Do they have enough material to play even if they only have one album?
