Keane singer Tom Chaplin has described the UK’s charts as being in a ‘sorry state’, with ‘fake pop’ taking over the mainstream scene.
Quoted in today’s Daily Star newspaper, Chaplin also highlighted an ‘exciting world underneath the charts’ which struggles for any commercial attention.
“The charts are in a sorry state,” he remarked. “It’s all just noise to me. I put on MTV occasionally and it’s just a racket. It bores me. Fake pop has taken over, terrible Europop and shit R&B that makes me think: ‘What’s going on? Didn’t this rubbish sound tired in the ’90s, let alone now?’”
“There’s loads of great stuff out there now which hasn’t a hope of making the Top 40. There’s an exciting world underneath the charts but the Top 40 is so disappointing these days.”
Keane released their new album ‘Strangeland‘ this week, which is expected to land the group another number one this coming Sunday (May 13th).Just Published:
