Coldplay are in the midst of putting together their sixth album, and today revealed a new song called “Midnight”.
Upon listening to it I was struck by the moody textured vocal layers of Chris, and despite the fact I really rather dislike comparing one artists work to another…Gosh doesn’t it sound a touch like Bon Iver.
Hence why I couldn’t help but hashtag it up with #ColdIver. Sure enough scrolling down to read the general consensus (YouTube comments) it seems I’m not alone.
That aside it’s yet another evolutionary step forward for Coldplay. I like the song and that they seem intent on consistently challenging themselves, as opposed to falling back on a tried and tested formula of success.
Like all music, some will adore this, others…
