Keane cites bands like Depeche Mode, The Beatles, The Smiths and U2 as direct influences on their sound - they started off playing mostly covers of U2 and Oasis songs. In their early years, Keane was often compared to Coldplay.
Tim Rice-Oxley co-wrote the song "Early Winter" with Gwen Stefani for her 2006 album The Sweet Escape.
The name comes from a woman named Cherry Keane who used to babysit the guys in the band when they were kids.
