[Official Video] Keane - Silenced By The Night
I don't want to call Keane's Silenced By The Night a return to form, since they've always been brilliant, but there's certainly that air of zeitgeist to the song that seems to resound with the sense of the 'return'. Its chorus is triumphant, soaring, anthemic in all the ways Keane's best songs are, and it also manages to deftly combine the clinical piano lines and pop ethos of Hopes & Fears with the touches of 80s flair that has so dominated their more recent work. It's a bringing together of the many various parts of Keane into a new, magnificent work that feels so wonderfully 'them'. We're glad you're back guys.
Silenced By The Night is released on the 30th April.
