Did you guys notice a small glitch in the track at 1:46? Just when the chorus kicks in; there's a small little break RIGHT before the downbeat of the chorus. This usually happens when a section of an audio file is cut and placed elsewhere (especially in remixes/rearrangements) in the track but there isn't a crossfade between the sections. But I can't imagine nobody noticing a glitch in the track, so I'm guessing it's made like that? Sounds a little weird to me for some reason. Anybody else feel the same way?

Speaking as an Oldplayer - I love this song. Like I'm really impressed. The production is top-notch. The chorus is infectiously catchy and has a tinge of sadness to it. It's also just really perfectly concise too which makes it really replayable.

Love:
In contention for my new fave CP bassline. I love the "boom ka boom boom ka" (is that Moses?). Great intro and outro. Love the very end of "I wanna be with you until the whole world ends." glass percussion is sweet. I just love when Chris sings about other people and tries* to share narratives.

Critique* -
There is a straight up error in the mix at 1:46.... Like a quarter second is missing? Chris' lyrics are ... interesting. I'm going to reserve my judgement until the whole album contextualizes this track, but I'm confused by the guy growing food, then the girl wanting to be in movies but they get bombed.... but like it's a "boom boom" catchy bombing? "Getting drunk with my friends" then back to bombing and the world ending. I'm just confused....

In regards to the lyrics vs the tone of the song, I think if The Arctic Monkeys or Kasabian made a song like this no one would question it.

It’s similar to Pumped Up Kicks or 99 red balloons. A happy sounding song with dark lyrics.

Ah, so you felt the glitch at 1:46 too. I thought something was wrong with my system or something. But when it happened across platforms, I realised that it could be a problem in the track itself.
It's really strange that such a glitch has come through without anyone at Coldplay HQ noticing it.

I love Jonny's guitar riffs, Will's percussion sounds wonderful, Chris' lyrics are wonderful as well. The combination of all of Chris' notes and the combination of all the instruments is splendid. And oh, wow, Jonny's guitar riffs sound as beautiful and catchy as always. You've never disappointed us J! That guitar riff at the end is making the song complete, it's simple but it's just perfect!
I love it, it sounds like Coldplay. To me, it has vibes of many music styles, in one song, which is amazing! Can't stop listening to this track :heart_eyes:

EDIT: Guy's bass lines WOW!

I wanna know, when I can go back and be young again :sob: This hit me straight in the heart. It’s such a desperate plea of wanting to go back to something that doesn’t exist anymore. Combined with the poppy, exuberant feel of the song just makes it very poignant to me.

It's pop Coldplay without Stargate and overproduction -- something I've been wanting badly for a while now. It's catchy, it's a fun listen, yet it's quite meaningful and sad beneath the upbeat exterior... I'm interpreting it as a song about kids in a war zone who have nowhere to run and just want to live their lives. This is their true Everyday Life versus the Everyday Life they want to live. It kinda compliments ALIENS and Moving to Mars, except these are the folks who can't run.

It kinda reminds me of Lovers in Japan actually
It sounds to me like a mishmash of Lovers In Japan, Strawberry Swing, and ETIAW.
