Keane is a fantastic alternative band from the U.K. The band members are Tom Chaplin, Tim Rice-Oxley and Richard Hughes. Their music is melodic, upbeat tempo, with lyrics sung by a clear, pleasant voice and nice harmony. It seems to be piano/keyboard driven.

Three of the four songs available to hear on their MySpace page are recordings from live performances. I enjoyed listening to all four songs but my favorite is "This is the Last Time" with "A Bad Dream" as a close second.

Keane is one of music2work2's MySpace friends and a friend I would recommend checking out. Their band website won People's Choice Award for Best Official Music Site in the 2007 BT Digital Music Awards. Keane are currently working on their third album.
