Coldplay is one of my favorite bands as I have always admired them for their musical charisma and talent--their sound is like that of no other band. But I feel like this music video has taken them from being a band to a band of artists!
As you are hit by the song's first strums of guitar, the Sun rises behind a row of quietly standing, deep blue-toned skyscrapers, as this bright light fills the clear morning sky with life. And as the song goes on, colors fill the camera and are splattering in all directions, as they sometimes blend and explode into fusions greater and more vivid than you can imagine. These colors seem to follow and surround the members of the band throughout the music video, as if the band is trying to say that wherever they go, they carry their passion for music with them as they will use their brushes and palettes to share that passion with the world around them.
This is what I admire about Coldplay--they are not afraid to spell out their feeling for music to the world. Some bands may try to tone things down a bit before displaying their tracks and videos for all to see, but Coldplay seems to hold nothing back--it's as if, instead of spending time making and erasing pencil outlines on the canvas before adding the paint, they throw all the paint on with the entire possible range of colors showing up! Their full potential practically explodes within their lyrics and music videos!
So I hope you enjoy this wildly explosive, colorfully talent-filled piece of work as much as I have. :)
