Yesterday, multi-million selling British band Keane won 'Best Video' at the Q Awards for their critically acclaimed horror movie music video for 'Disconnected', directed by 'The Orphanage' and 2012 blockbuster 'The Impossible' directors JA Bayona and Sergio G. Sanchez and taken from their Number 1 album 'Strangeland'.
Tom said,"It's great that a magazine like Q is still around to support a video like Disconnected which took real artistic endeavour, love, soul and passion to make. We're completely indebted to the brilliant Spanish filmmakers JA Bayona and Sergio Sanchez for all their hard work in making it happen. Thanks!"
You can watch 'Disconnected' below:
Bayona and Sanchez shot the video in an old mansion in Barcelona and stars the band and Spanish actors Leticia Dolera and Felix Gomez in the main roles. Bayona and Sanchez's second film collaboration will be released at the end of this year; 'The Impossible', an epic drama set during the Thailand tsunami in 2004, starring Naomi Watts and Ewan McGregor.
Keane's new album 'Strangeland' entered the UK charts at Number one in May to make it their fifth consecutive number one album, equaling Coldplay and Radiohead, and beaten only by The Beatles.
'Strangeland' debuted in the top ten in twenty countries around the world. It is their fourth studio album, after 'Hopes & Fears' (2004); 'Under The Iron Sea' (2006); 'Perfect Symmetry' (2008) and the 'Night Train' EP (2010) which also topped the UK Album Chart.
