Keane - Bend and Break
Most bands start out with a few rough EP's or an album or two that aren't that great or anything, but for English Piano Rock band Keane, they seem to have transcended that trend. Their first studio album, Hopes and Fears, really shines forth the talent and beauty that Keane is. Tom Chaplin's voice is beautiful, soothing, and all around pleasing to the ears. This album is filled with little gems that seem to elegantly capture the essence of mature emotion. The finding of Love, the loss of love, and overall change are exuberated with beautiful piano melodies and a stunning voice. All of which come together for an ultimately wonderful listening experience. Which makes Keane, the band that they are.
