OK, Coldplay, I have been known to like you in the past, so I give you a shot here. This does sound like an effort to catch the popular electronic vibe in their own way: "Ebullient chords and melodic uplift are never far from the kind of non-specific portent that has become Coldplay's trademark. But this one seems to have something of the festival about it; from the ravey intro to the euphoric lyrics ("I turn the music up, I got my records on"), it seems to be an attempt to get as many hands in the air as possible."
Other items on the playlist this week, if the above is not enough sound for you: The Saturdays, Kaskade, Incubus.
Have a good night!
