Keane wordt eind jaren 90 opgericht door Tim Rice-Oxley, Richard Hughes en zanger Tom Chaplin. De band kenmerkt zich door niet met een gitarist te werken. Dat wordt weer gedaan door de synthesizer waar Rice-Oxley mee werkt.

In 2004 verschijnt hun debuut album Hopes And Fears. In Engeland stoomt het album door naar de eerste plaats en ook in Nederland gaat het goed en behaald het album de derde plaats. Hits van het album zijn Somewhere Only We Know, Everybody's Changing, Bedshaped en This Is The Last Time.

In 2006 laat zanger Tom Chaplin zich opnemen in een kliniek om van zijn drugsverslaving af te komen. Dat jaar verschijnt het tweede album Under The Iron Sea. Album nummer 3 Perfect Symmetry verschijnt in 2008. Rond die tijd scoort de band niet veel hits meer. Er volgen nog de EP Night Train, het album Strangeland en de verzamelaar The Very Best Of Keane. Chaplin gaat solo en het wordt stil rond de band.

In 2019 wordt de stilte doorbroken als de groep terugkeert met The Way I Feel. Ook is Keane dan weer te zien op het podium waarbij ze in september onder meer in Scheveningen spelen tijdens Live On The Beach. Twee weken na die show verschijnt er met Cause & Effect een nieuw album van de band.


Songtekst

I dreamed I was drowning
In the river Thames
I dreamed I had nothing at all
Nothing but my own skin

(I dreamed I was drifting
On the howling wind
I dreamed I had nothing at all
Nothing but my own skin)

Slipped away from your open hands
Into river
Saw your face looking back at me
I saw my past, and I saw my future

You take the pieces of the dreams that you have
Cos you don't like the way they seem to be going
You cut them up and spread them out on the floor
You're full of hope as you begin rearranging
Put it all back together
But any way you look at this
Looks like
The lovers are losing

I dreamed I was watching
The young lovers dance
I reached out to touch your hair
But I was watching from a distance

We cling to love like a skidding car
Clings to a corner
I tried to hold onto what we are
The more I squeeze, the quicker we're over

You take the pieces of the dreams that you have
Cos you don't like the way they seem to be going
You cut them up and spread them out on the floor
You're full of hope as you begin rearranging
Put it all back together
But any way you look at this
Looks like
The lovers are losing

I dreamed I had nothing at all; Nothing but my own skin
(I dreamed I had nothing at all; Nothing but my own skin
I dreamed I had nothing at all; Nothing but my own skin)
I dreamed I had nothing at all; Nothing at all

(You take the pieces of the dreams that you have
Cos you don't like the way they seem to be going
You cut them up and spread them out on the floor
You're full of hope as you begin rearranging
Put it all back together
But any way you look at this
Looks like
The lovers are losing)

You take the pieces of the dreams that you have
Cos you don't like the way they seem to be going
You cut them up and spread them out on the floor
You're full of hope as you begin rearranging
Put it all back together
But in the final reckoning
Looks like
The lovers are losing
