To the uninitiated, they’re the band that everyone loves to bash. However, to those in the know, Coldplay are an honest and eclectic outfit, drawing comparisons with longer-established bands such as U2.
While Yellow and Parachutes might have set Coldplay up as a guitar band, Chris Martin hasn’t been afraid to push musical boundaries and experiment. Mylo Xyloto fused pop foundations with Brian-Eno-style sonics, and Everyday Life sees the band delving into diverse genres such as gospel, Janis Joplin, and Ghanaian jazz.
With politically-pertinent lyrics that don’t shy from social commentary, Coldplay isn’t afraid to wear its heart on its collective sleeve and it’s this attitude that has seen it grow from a ‘90s indie band to a 21st-century, stadium-filling powerhouse.
