What do you get when you combine Lego robot men with upbeat piano pop-rock and semi-depressing lyrics? That would be "Spiraling," the first video off the third album from no-longer-electric-guitarless Brit trio, Keane.
The three-man group (frontman/Will Forte lookalike Tom Chaplin, drummer Richard Hughes and piano-player Tim Rice-Oxley) has come a long way since 1997 -- the year they formed -- and 2004 -- the year their debut LP, Hopes and Fears, became the second biggest-selling record in the U.K. and landed them a job opening for U2.
And whether you've been on board since the beginning or you only know them for their monster 2006 single, "Is It Any Wonder?" you'll be surprised (pleasantly,even) with the newly revamped/synthesized sound of their latest album, Perfect Symmetry.
So watch Keane's trancelike laser show (oooh, pretty colors!) admire their Robbie Williams + Oasis feel, and agree to disagree with their fatalistic/just-got-dumped view of relationships ("When we fall in love / we're just falling in love with ourselves.")
