New Music: Keane Are Super OriginalAugust 4, 2008 at 10:25 pm | Posted in Music | 2 Comments
Keane released a new single today available as a free download (not unlike Coldplay’s Violet Hill) until August 11th. Their fresh new song comes straight from 1983 (or 2005 when The Bravery, The Killers and The Futureheads brought the 80’s back again). Keane, formerly known as The Lotus Eaters, have really tried to go for something really different to their last two albums and, listening to the song for the first time, you would think that that Tom Chaplin was high when he wrote it…
It took me a while to figure out where I recognized the beat and bass but it’s cleary David Bowies Let’s Dance with a hint of Animotion’s Obsession for cheesiness. I have to admit that’s a grower and will make one hell of a mashup one day when someone with more rhythm than myself mixes it with Bowie.
You can download the song from their official website here or listen to it on YouTube after the break. Alternatively, if you’re the patient type, you can buy the album Perfect Symmetry from October 13th.
