^I am right with ya! I want to hear some really flashy, drum oriented songs with cymbal flares and dynamic beats that are surprising and fresh! But if they go back toward drumpads, I want to see some really intense experimentation, not just 2x4 4x4 beats that there were a ton of on GS. I am talking shattering sounds and wobbles and cool synthy percussion. Nothing pleases me more than cool drumming and I love how many new corridors drumpads are opening up for percussionists, especially in Hip-Hop. it is the future of music.

Good find!! But that video doesn't necessarily mean we will get a lot of modular synths, which they have been using for a while. It is just a goal of his, but I don't know if that means a lot more for Coldplay.

 

So did the boys record in several locations for GS too? It seems like since Chris is in LA that is something they were up to for the last era.. Don't know what to think about that.

yes true. modular synth use is a reach. on GS recordings, i remember them saying in an interview that the band spend 2 weeks in LA and then in london alternatively as they share band custody. so probably recorded in london and LA.

Oh c'mon now...iunno who is running Coldplaying's twitter account but the interview never said or even hinted that synths will "feature" in LP7. Perhaps they'll be involved in LP7, but to say it'll feature is false. IMO, that is just as misleading as when the 'bloids said Coldplay are quitting after what Chris said about it being like the final Harry Potter novel....

RE, JC's comment about Twitter : There are different things being stated about the video from each of you, please clarify? I've scanned this thread + posted the video but can't anaylise the video myself right now.

In response to "What are you working on?" Rik says LP7, and notes the recording in different places.

 

The next question for what do you want to do in 2015, he says "lots of modular synths."

 

One could make the connection that he means modular synths IN LP7....or not.

The exact quotes of interest is here. Rik Simpson was asked what he was up to/working on at the moment, to which he responded:

 

"New Coldplay album, LP7 I think it is, which is going well, lots of travelling and recording in different locations but we're still based here in London pretty much for most of our time".

 

As a follow up he was asked what his plans are for 2015 to which he said "use more modular synths", in a joking sort of manner.

 

Iunno, I would need more to go off of to go ahead and announce that synths will feature in LP7.

I can live with that, but what was tweeted was that it will FEATURE, like it will be a main focal point of something, which I don't think he meant at all.

 

A new interview with Coldplay's producer, Rik Simpson (Tech talk). We can expect 'modular synths' to feature on LP7

edit: sorry about the scary bolding y'all

i was just wondering something when Chris said in an interview "Not to say that there might not be another thing one day, but this is the completion of something" does he mean its the end of something just need to clarify things up :)

Clarification from the band afterwards suggests he meant that its the end of a theme that was running since LP1 and will end with LP7. It does NOT mean the band are splitting up after LP7.

Can't wait to see what happens in the next "cycle" - lp1-7 seems to cover a lot of ground so where they will go with their creative rebirth is intriguing... Perhaps we will see some dramatic alteration like a name change or addition to the line up...the end of the record deal makes the prospekt of lp8-15 all the more enticing.

Probably won't be any big change though.

lolwut? So you went through a bunch of stuff you can see them changing (name change, new member, etc) and you end with doing a 180 and say there probably wont be any changes....?

 

Anywho, yeah, don't see any big changes. Coldplay have said themselves that they aren't the best technically; they don't have the fastest guitarist or the loudest drummer or anything, but what sets them apart is their chemistry. I do not see them messing with that formula whatsoever.

That was just idle speculation lol - yea I can't see any lineup changes but hopefully something will set the next "cycle" apart from this one.

Maybe Will will become the lead singer????

 

you know i was thinking about this awhile ago. the thing is, as sweet as will's voice is, it is not a lead vocal type. for me it feels too sweet and subtle, at least from what we've heard so far. it also goes to show how much character chris' voice has. but a couple of will's lead vocals would be pretty great.

We already have two songs with Will on lead vocals. (The Goldrush, Death Will Never Conquer [Live])
