LISTEN /// COLDPLAY - PARADISE
Now Chris Martin & co aren’t regular fixtures on Hitsville (they’re a little too beige for us cool blogger kids), but their upcoming Mylo Xyloto album is quite anticipated, so it’s worth posting "Paradise", the latest single from the album. One word comes to mind, or to be more accurate, one name; Kanye. This genuinely sounds as if it could slot in on a Yeezy album or at least have been produced by him. It’s got the dark synth undercurrent, the unsubtle stadium guitars, the lolloping beat and bombastic strings that have become hallmarks of West’s sound in the last few years. It’s already being trashed by fans, but for some odd reason, I quite like this. What do you lot think?
