Coldplay ditched their traditional instruments and produced an experimental, minimalistic ambient electronic song which, surprisingly, rocked the charts and was even certified gold in Italy.
Coldplay are a 4-piece band from the UK that started out as post-Britpop and alt. rock, moving to art rock and space rock in their third and fourth albums (X&Y, Viva La Vida or Death And All His Friends), but has recently spanned genres of pop, funk, and EDM in their latest albums. In other words, they sold out.
This song was released in April 17, 2014, and was the 2nd single released for their 6th LP, Ghost Stories. Coldplay experiments with synths, loops, and processed vocals in the piece.
