Coldplay – ‘Magic’

0

Excluding last year’s contribution to the ‘Catching Fire‘ soundtrack, Coldplay have not released a single since Hurts like Heaven in 2012. That the band have just announced a new album ‘Ghost Stories‘ will please fans just as much as this new single from the upcoming LP. This is not typical Coldplay either, with the beginning of the song sounding like The xx, being very stripped back and minimalist. The drum machine and lack of guitars may concern those who appreciate their live performances but at this stage of their career, Coldplay seem to be enjoying experimenting with their musical style and it shows. This song is a grower and is all the better for it. Diehard Coldplay critics may yet be won over.
