If Keane’s feverishly loyal fanbase wondered what the group’s next album would sound like, they weren’t the only ones. In the eight years following the release of 2004’s nine times platinum Brit award winning ‘Hopes & Fears’, every Keane album has marked a clear progression from the previous one: the anxious emotional terrain mapped out by ‘Under The Iron Sea’; the iridescent poptimism of ‘Perfect Symmetry’ featuring the electro charged hit song ‘Spiralling’, voted Q Magazine’s 2008 Song Of The Year.

The fourth album from the now four-piece band hit number one in the Irish album charts on its release in May.
