We have always wanted to do another animation (after the brilliant Bedshaped video by our friend Corin Hardy) and this seemed like a great time to look back through the years. This song celebrates music, and the video celebrates a ton of different images, scenes and memories in ten years of Keane. Spot the many references to old artwork, and the tours that followed.

You Haven't Told Me Anything
Keane - Perfect Symmetry
(150)

keane-music-collection:

"We have a song on the new record called You Haven't Told Me Anything which starts with a drum machine then I play the drums along with it with everybody kicks in too. It really is so pumping live (laughs). I love playing it. It's one of the fastest song we're ever recorded. It's pedal to the floor for four minutes." - Richard [x]



Atlantic
Keane - Under The Iron Sea
(159)

keane-music-collection:

"Well Atlantic was the first thing that we recorded for the record, and it was actually gonna be a b-side. It was weird - it was just a very very scrappy demo. To be honest, I don't think any of us had really thought that it could be a really great song, or a great piece of music or anything; but Richard started playing this weird thing on the drums - we had some drums from the demo and he started playing out-of-time with them, sort of half a beat behind them. And it created this weird, incredible drum pattern which was funky and industrial, and it just brought the whole song to life and it immediately started to sound amazing. It's a piece of music that I'm really really proud, and I think we're all really really proud of as a band. It's a great example of a piece of music that we've all contributed to, and it wouldn't be the song that it is unless we all put something special into it. The reason it's the first song on the record, is because it's got such an incredible atmosphere to it, and I guess it's about having a terror of being alone - it sets the mood of the record really well, both musically and lyrically." - Tim - Podcast 2 (22nd May 2006)

"I just adore playing [it] live and I think it’s a really beautiful song with really poetic lyrics." Richard [x]
