Keane - Sovereign Light Cafe Video
"Sovereign Light Cafe" Video Review
British rockers Keane premiered a brand-new video “Sovereign Light Cafe”, for the third single to be extracted from their latest effort “Strangeland”. The album is on its second week as No. 1 on the United Kingdom albums chart.
The video was shot in Bexhill and shows the band members taking a walk on the seafront while meeting with acrobats, bikers, dancers and horseback riders looking kind of cheerless.
Recently, Tim Rice (the song writer) had a blog post about this song and what it means to him:
“I had a sketch of the melody on a cassette and was listening to it on a flight into Mexico in 2009. I couldn’t come up with any words, but then I was sitting in a bus on the way from Sao Paulo airport to our hotel and suddenly the name of the old cafe on Bexhill seafront came into my head. I had actually always wanted to write a song with that title – when I was about 16 I remember being on holiday with Richard and having a song that went “Sovereign Light Cafe, down by the sea, go there with me” or something….it was a crap song! Anyway after a gap of many years the phrase popped back into my head and unlocked this idea of looking back to the beginning and trying to work out what had happened to me, and to us, over the last 15 years or so. “
