Video memories #5: Disconnected
To coincide with the release of The Best Of Keane (out now - get it from Amazon or iTunes), we asked the band to share their memories of the official videos of the songs from the album. Here's Jesse, telling us about the Disconnected video:
Making this was so much fun. It was a bit like being on a Hollywood blockbuster set. JA and Sergio are so talented and are such nice guys. My favourite bit was having to play everything extremely fast while people threw bin bags full of leaves at us. It's now become part of our pre-gig ritual.

@Indonesia: I hate this video. I can barely see you, Jesse :D the shouldn't move the frames THAT fast. That would be my only complaint. Can say anything negative about Disconnected. Simple wonderful... The music, the lyric, the.video. Jesse, I'm glad the crews just throw the leaves at you guys. They keep the bin save and sound :D and hey I have a particular fave scene from this video, that is when Leticia's spaghetti strap fell down at the moment she murmurs "between us now" at the (almost) end. I don't know why, maybe the timing, or else.. just find it very nice :D
Happy Birthday Tom! I wish you all the very best because you deserve this and so much more. I wish you lots of health, love, joy and happiness. never stop being the perfect singer ever and making the most beautiful music. wish all of your dreams to come true :) I must say that I wouldn't be the person I am without you and Keane. You made me the happiest person in the world! I wish you so much success with the solo album you work on and with everything you're about to do in your life :) you are the sunshine of my life! you brighten all my days with your SPECIAL voice :) you are my angel, my idol and my inspiration and I hope that one day you'll come to perform here in my country, in Israel :) I've known you and keane for 7 years now and I'm so glad about that, knowing such a band like keane is a gift! so I hope you're having the most amazing day and enjoying it to the fullest!!! I LOVE YOU SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO SO MUCH Tommmmy! ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ Marielle♥Israel
Disconnected is one of the best music videos ive ever watched. It may little bit scary but thats okay hahahaha thumbs up! :) love you guys!
I liked Jesse's memories, I do love not only the song "Disconnected" but also the vid. I'm missing you boys. Beijos, Regina.
People threw bin bags full of leaves at you? Happy childish fun and a great way to have fun together- hope you really did do it before shows and you weren't just being facetious there Jesse! I always loved Disconnected- no-one will ever convince me that Strangeland is a 'bad' album, I love it.
I take back everything I said about our boys deserve taking a break to themselves. Passion has no intervals, i.e, I wanna the four immediately! OMG!!!!!! I'm eager for them!!!!!
Original and interesting video clip, like a little horror movie. I like the song too. We miss you, come back soon. Big kisses from the south of France.
