Keane a lot to offer

GIG REVIEW: Keane, 02 Academy, Manchester, Wednesday May 30
ALTHOUGH I liked Keane’s debut album, 2004’s Hopes and Fears, I never really kept up with them much after that, although evidently they have been anything but idle.
From the outset, as lead singer Tom Chaplin bounds onto the stage, the band play with vigour, emotion and excitement. Much of the material comes from their classic debut Hopes and Fears, with songs such as Somewhere Only We Know, This is the Last Time, Bedshaped and We Might as Well Be Strangers still sounding as urgent and poignant as they did upon release.
The material from Strangeland, although brand new to my ears, was instantly appealing, and proves that Keane’s piano led sound still has a lot to offer.
