Keane

Stephen Dalton, Times, The, 20 April 2012

A RAINY NIGHT in Zurich. These streets may be paved with Nazi gold, but tonight they are also alive with the sound of music. On a small stage in the politely bohemian Plaza club, Keane are playing a low-key fan-club show to launch their latest album.

The boys are back in town. Switzerland, lock up your daughters.
