[NEW RELEASES] Keane
But while K’naan’s uplifting voice soars right alongside Chaplin’s to great success on tracks like “Looking Back” and “Stop for a Minute” (the EP’s hit single), Tigarah misses the mark.
Her song “Ishin Denshin (You’ve Got to Help Yourself)” sounds like sparkly J-Pop out of a Dance Dance Revolution machine. It’s a jarring addition, especially next to the lyrics of “Your Love” - “Now I’m lying on your floor/ crashed on the surface of your love” - which are more Robert Smith than Belinda Carlisle.
But Keane has to be applauded for experimenting. They take note of the ’80s craze, infusing their tracks with techno and electronica, while still producing the emotive, introspective tunes that their fans love.
