Keane (from left to right): Tim Rice-Oxley, Tom Chaplin, Richard Hughes

Keane are a British rock band from Battle, East Sussex. Their musical style resembles those of Britpop bands like Coldplay and Radiohead. The main difference between Keane and most other bands is in the line-up. They don't have a guitarist, basing their music on the piano instead.

All the members studied at Tonbridge School in Kent. They started out in college in 1997 as a covers band, playing songs by U2, Oasis, and The Beatles but soon wanted to perform their own material, and released two short-run EPs. Simon Williams of Fierce Panda records was asked by a mutual friend to attend a Keane gig at the Betsey Trotwood in London and was so impressed that he offered to issue the band's next single. After another single on Fierce Panda, they signed to Island and released the single 'Somewhere Only We Know', which reached number 3 in the UK in February 2004. Their album Hopes and Fears followed in May. It reached #1 and was the second biggest selling album of the year in the UK, after the Scissor Sisters.
