Keane’s music has played an crucial role in my adolescence. They inspired me how to traditional piano or keyboard transforms to the modern alternative rock music. Several years later, they made a breakthrough of leveraging the 80s typical pop music to next level. At first, I was not impressed by “Spiralling”. I felt like it was too old-schooled. I was still totally indulged with “Is it any wonder”.
Several years later, the release of Beck’s “Dreams” immediately reminds me of “Spiralling”. Am I the only one who think that Keane’s Spiralling resembles with Beck’s Dreams? There are many similarities between both. The tempo, bass etc. Now, what do you think?
