Their youthfulness has branded Keane as bed-wetters, so titling their third single Bedshaped is perhaps not the best idea they've had. Nevertheless, ever since the fluid voice of choirboy-faced singer Tom Chaplin graced our radios, we have, as a nation, picked this band up and cradled them in our arms.
In return, the guitar-less Travis-soundalikes deliver indie pop that is immediately melodic, maturely emotional and intensely striking. After two hit singles and a stunning debut album in Hopes And Fears, the Keane tap keeps running with Bedshaped, a sensitive gem of a single that is dramatic as it is lulling.
A slightly more sedate song than the previous two singles, what starts off as a delicate lullaby of a melody crescendos into a searing power chorus that lifts you up like a tidal wave. It's already being played to death on the radio, and it's going to be hit number three.
