Keane - Silenced by the Night

Keane, back to their dull and boring best.

The band are quite simply a relic of 2004.  After winning the 'BBC Sound of' poll in that year, their debut 'Hopes and Fears' was released to commercial success. Since then they've released some songs, two more albums....zzzzzzzzzzz.

The band are now releasing a new single, Silenced by the Night and a fourth album in May.  But aside from the odd synth riff in 'Perfect Symmetry', the band haven't developed their piano-driven rock-pop in the slightest over the past decade.  Same old band, same old music.  Yawn.

Part Coldplay, part Elbow, part Snow Patrol, Keane are quite possibly the dullest band in existence.  If only they were silenced by the night.  And the day.  And every time in between.

Wake me up in three minutes time.


Listen: meh.

Watch: meh.
