Tim: We’re a bit late to this (although it is technically still their current single), but it’s worth a feature on here just because it’s the most enjoyable track Coldplay have put out in ages, largely thanks to a certain Swedish dance producer and keyboard player.
Tom: Crikey, that’s… well, that’s Coldplay mixed with Avicii. Which is to say, VERY GOOD INDEED.
Tim: So this is their Shot At The Night, except rather than go to M83 for assistance they went to Avicii instead, because who wouldn’t, especially if you might become friends and then one day be able to wrangle a stay at his LA apartment (totally not jealous).
Tom: Fifteen million dollars. That’s about a downpayment on a one-bedroom flat in London.
Tim: They have EMBRACED THE LIGHT SIDE, even if it is just for one track and stands out like something of a sore thumb on the album that’s otherwise full of standard Coldplay fare, and it’s worked out brilliantly.
Tom: Agreed: that’s a concert-stopper, assuming the audience don’t just go “that’s not what you normally do”.
Tim: More proof of how great Swedes are when it comes to music.
