Brady: Not going to overanalyze this one too much. I think this could’ve been pretty good. I mean, it’s so incredibly of the moment Calvin Harris / Ellie Goulding big drop BS, but the part leading up to it was alright. Was hoping it was going in a more M83 direction, which, I mean, come on! Why can’t people latch onto that sound? 4/10
Brian: No one can escape EDM. Not even Coldplay. No one is safe. Hide your epic stadium rock bands. Run while you can U2. Watch your backs, Muse. Skrillex is coming for you, and he’s going to shave weird parts of your head. 3/10
Karin: Sounds like a Coldplay song. Boring/10
I love Coldplay, wholeheartedly and unironically, and I hate this song.
I don’t think this is the way all music is heading. It’s not an evolution of music to use EDM characteristics in other genres. It just means we’re going through a modern day version of the late 70’s disco phase. And the late 70’s disco phase was super embarassing.
