26 Oct 2005, 19:31 by ProgbearI just discovered Keane’s debut LP and I'm digging it a whole lot. Mostly piano, bass and drums with some synths and some nicely emotive vocals. Very melodic latter-day pop music, with a lovely organic piano sound and synths adding a slight "techno"-ish edge to some pieces, giving it a bright modern feel. Some of this reminds me of Paul McCartney in his more somber moments (the singer sounds a bit McCartney-esque at times). And the heavy use of piano (actually a Yamaha CP-70, from the looks of the cover) made me think of the tragically underrated 90's band Suddenly, Tammy!, though these guys are definitely very English. More along the lines of Blue Nile, or perhaps some Prefab Sprout.
Curiously, I see a lot of people comparing them to Coldplay and Muse. I'm sorry, but I just don't hear it. They seem to have little or nothing to do with the Coldplay/Muse/Porcupine Tree axis of "inferior Radiohead-lite", at least to my ears.
Anyone else dig this album?
