“It’s never gonna fade away.”

“Higher Than The Sun” by Keane | I know being a Keane fan, or even possibly mentioning Keane in these places, will get you hate from hipsters who don’t want vaguely indie sweater-and-slippers pop music, but, and I said this before, they’re my first favorite band, and therefore will automatically get mentioned in this place. The band’s releasing a best of album this November – like the Killers, they’re also hitting ten years of relative popularity – and it will have two new tracks in it, or more likely, outtakes from Strangeland, considering how “Higher Than The Sun” sounds. Unintentional association with the Primal Scream song of the same name aside, this song is… it’s all right. It’s what you’d expect from Keane. But it is, mostly likely, a Strangeland outtake, and it’s likely going to slide down most of us like that album did. That said, I know some Keane fans will love how the Philippines features prominently in the single art. [NB]
