Keane are an English piano rock band; first established in Battle; East Sussex in 1995; taking their current name in 1997. The group comprises composer; bassist; and pianist Tim Rice-Oxley; lead vocalist Tom Chaplin and drummer Richard Hughes.Their original line-up included founder and guitarist Dominic Scott; who left in 2001. Keane are known for using a piano as their lead instrument instead of guitars; significantly differentiating them from most rock bands. The inclusion of a distorted piano effect since 2006 and various synthesizers are now a common feature in their music that nowadays combines the pure piano rock sound used during their first album and the alternative rock sound which developed during 2005. "The Frog Prince" is a song performed and composed by English alternative rock band Keane, released as the closing track on their second album, Under the Iron Sea. The song was composed in 2004 and first mentioned by Tim Rice-Oxley on the Strangers DVD. A demo version also features Rice-Oxley singing on the lead vocals.
