Hmmm... What to think of this, I don't know if it's real or not (as does everyone else haha)

 

At some parts it sounds like Chris, at some parts it doesn't.. Like the "Flash" part (I think it's flash) does not sound like Chris. Interesting song though! I just hope that some new material will be released.

Actually, I still think it COULD be real. Not saying it is, but given that the guys wrote like 600 songs or whatever it was, and even with the 60 minutes piano markings and the notebook and all that we still only have about 50, there's plenty of scope for others in various states of completion. This could have just been something that dropped off very early in the development of the album but late in the development of the song itself... most likely dropped BECAUSE it's mostly electronic and only Chris features. If it is actually real, that is.

:nod: I agree.

Yes :nod: , I thought it was like a "warm-up song" to be dropped to get the feel of what they were gonna do for the MX era. And who said they couldn't sound like this? I remember when everyone bitched about how Coldplay wasn't "the same" anymore because they went more electronic on the album. Positivity people!!! Let them explore!! >:/

This. :nod:

 

If your not exploring, then your not reaching new found heights.

If it turns out to be some local band, i would think it's pretty decent. However, if it turns out to be Coldplay, i would really really like it just because of the sole fact that it takes that experimental step without crossing the line of shallowness or being too poppy. It's almost the same thing as Gotye. I really respect him and his music because he doesn't have one sound that he duplicates 10, 11, 12 times on an album. His stuff is really experimental and he's not afraid to try anything. :)

Uhm, undoubtly fake. But I think Coldplay will use a sound similar to this one in the future.

Not rock, not dance, not funky: just Coldplay.

 

P.s. we can clearly listen the voice in this song can't do a clean falsetto like Chris.

Edit: don't know why it reminds me of Idioteque.

Sounds like actual Coldplay to me, and I like it. They can go in all directions, they are that talented. Who knew we'd get Goldrush, or A Spell a Rebel Yell?

It reminds me a lot of Spell a Rebel Yell with the voice distortion and weird music. Lol.

We all know Viva La Vida experienced months and months of evolution before the band arrived at the strings/church bell arrangement. Somewhere out there, there are several demos with electric guitars and regular drums leading the song. If we heard any one of those, it would probably sound strange to everybody. My guess is this track is some strange demo from the earlier stages of MX. The vocals are probably just a rough sketch as they tried develop the track. What would be cool is if someone took this sketch and made a professional recording. Great cover opportunity out there...

Someone should ask it to the Oracle, I guess, though she won't probably answer.

 

I asked and I think one or two other people did too. The way I'll be looking at it is if she responds it's fake, if she doesn't there's a slight chance it could be real.

Q. So... someone posted a link of this over at the Coldplaying forums. Is it one of Coldplay's? Because of the filters on the vocals, it's made it hard to tell for me whether or not it's Chris! Half of me says it could be him, half says not :P

 

 

The Oracle replies:

 

I can see why people could think it's Chris but it doesn't sound like Jonny's inimitable guitar sound. I don't know the song or who it is and although he has certain similarities, if you listen closely there are parts you can hear that it isn't Chris.

I don't recall ever seeing that song title knocking around either.
