The Band similar to Coldplay!


Recommended Posts

Please help me!! Love Coldplay with all my heart, but is there any other band I can love even close? :)


I mean, 95 percent of all the music I listen is Coldplay.:laugh3:.and I decided to give a go to some other rock band. I occasionaly listen to hard rock, Placebo, Offspring, rock-pop like Robbie Williams, Timberlake (yeah!) and Rob Thomas...


But any other rock band?:cool:


Tried U2, not really... I think lyrics are not my type.. What album should I give a go? they have so many..:dozey:


Oasis - big no! couple of good songs, rest is too noisy, not touching..:\


Green Day - good, like it actually, but its more like punk - rock..:confused:


Maybe Keane? tried couple of songs now, pretty good!! Thinking of buying an album...:P


What would you advice, what do you listen to? :):D

Radiohead - In Rainbow and OK Computer <<< inspired Coldplay

The Rifles - No Love Lost (only had one release so far <<< Brit Rock @ it's best

The Kooks - Konk <<< Decent

Muse - Absolution, Black Holes & Revelation <<<< Very good!

MGMT - Orcular Spectacular <<<< A love em or hate em band

Neither do I.;)

I've always quite liked U2, and elements of VLV sound U2-ish owing to the Eno involvement. However, generally speaking, I think their sound is very different and has a harder edge.

maybe Snow PAtrol lacks deep sense, but lyrics are good :


"And it's beginning to get to me

That I know more of the stars and sea

Than I do of what's in your head

Barely touching in our cold bed


It's so thrilling but also wrong

Don't have to prove that you are so strong

'Cause I can carry you on my back

After our enemies attack


I tried to tell you before I left

But I was screaming under my breath

You are the only thing that makes sense

Just ignore all this present tense..."

don't that thread should be on WoM sub-forum :thinking:


the ones i would advice you have been said already (Snow Patrol, Travis, The Kooks...), but i think you do nothing bad listening to some older bands may be... why not bands that Coldplay have said they like/admire :idea2: for instance: Echo and The Bunnymen or The Verve, just an idea.


I think if you say what you'd like to listen may be we can advice you better...

for instance i like some bands just for their kind of classical style (mainly for piano songs/parts) like The Fray, The Feeling, Counting Crows :uhoh:


For more rock bands i prefer: Placebo, The Raconteurs, Jet...

Others: Mattafix, Mike Oldfield, Seth Lakeman


May be check the Mixtape Exchange thread will help you to get to new bands. :)


:o I didn't knew that there are Fiction Plane fans here :o
