Keane

Strangeland
Artwork

The last "official" Keane album to come out, Perfect Symmetry was actually one of the first heavily influenced pop albums to embrace the 80's again. They didn't do it in a way where that dominated the sound but likening that to Genesis or a Phil Collins album wasn't out of the question. Since then, the 80's have made a mini-comeback with bands incorporating that into both pop and alternative genres. Keane didn't necessarily start the trend, but they did do it first. Their last album, Night Train was even more experimental, it was marketed as a B-sides collection in the U.K. even though it was treated as a traditional release here in the U.S. Now the latest Keane album, Strangeland has the group taking a return to their roots, writing an album that closely resembles Hopes & Fears but taking what the band did on their last few albums and lightly infusing that with the traditional Keane sound.
