No, your eyes don't deceive you. This is a post about an all-male band. No women present.
It may not be "cool" to like Coldplay, but who cares about being cool? The fact is, few bands have the repertoire these British dudes have. For every schmaltzy song like "Yellow," there's an epic song like "Politik."
On the newly released "Midnight," frontman Chris Martin puts his voice through a harmonizer, allowing his falsetto to take on a ghostly quality. As the subtle electronica swirls underneath him, the song builds until it explodes into a meteor shower of beeps and beats. The song is less accessible than songs like "Clocks," but it's for the better. The band could stand to change up their typical arena rock sound a bit.
Watch the Mary Wigmore-directed video below, which features the band exploring their fetish with X-ray color schemes.
