British band Keane was formed in 1995 by Tom Chaplin, Richard Hughes and Tim Rice-Oxley. They started out as a U2 cover band before going on to perform their own songs. In 2004, they achieved mainstream, international success with the release of their hit single Somewhere Only We Know, off their debut album, Hopes and Fears. The latter topped the UK album charts upon release and won several awards, including the 2005 Brit Award for Best British Album. This record has since been certified nine times platinum by BPI (British Phonographic Industry – Britain’s recorded music industry’s trade association)! The band had officially entered the league of fellow pop-rock idols, Coldplay. Keane’s music is recognizable by its distinctive piano melodies and fits into the categories of alternative rock, piano rock and Britpop. The Somewhere Only We Know piano sheet music is available for anyone who wishes to work on their keyboard skills while taking pleasure in playing this well-known, melodious tune. Other obvious famous Keane songs to be played on piano are Is It Any Wonder, Crystal Ball and Spiralling... The band’s second album Under the Iron Sea came out in 2004, followed by Night Train, a 2010 release with AZ/Universal.
