What followed for the next 90 minutes was a perfect mix of old songs and new. Playing classics such as ‘Bend and Break’, This is the last time’, and ‘Last Time’ all in the first half of the set along with later tracks and songs off their new EP entitled ‘Night Train’.

James Hendicott, State Magazine
The sound has become more expansive, with Keane edging into territory that has musical similarities to pretty much every mainstream pop ‘rock’ act of the last twenty years. ‘Original’ no longer applies, but at their best Keane are a class act.
