Keane and Snow Patrol
This summer we were at a party at a friend's house and the Gotham Gal got to talking about the music we like with another guest at the party. After hearing that we like Death Cab, Franz Ferdinand, Coldplay, and others, he recommended two bands, Keane and Snow Patrol.
Snow Patrol rocks out more. Keane's got more pop sensibility. Both are worth getting if you like the Coldplay/Death Cab style of music.
Emily and the Gotham Gal prefer Keane. Emily told me they played a couple songs from the Hopes and Fears disc on One Tree Hill this season. That doesn't surprise me.
Josh and I prefer Snow Patrol. They have an edge that Keane doesn't have.
Here's some links to iTunes songs from both records:
