Wait Something Just Like This is in the EP? I hope it's a different take of the song, maybe they can salvage it a bit

I think the song's good, but I don't like the bell-like sound from the intro that loops through the song. Wonder if they'll play this on the Asia tour...

I can't get over how beautiful this track is. It's the culmination of everything we've had since Ghost Stories. It's fluid, it's moving, it's powerful. Not to mention how clean the production is. And the lyrics are good! And Chris saying, "J!" and everything. I'm floored, tbh. Completely floored.

When I heard "J!" I got goosebumps. Never thought we'd hear that in a studio version of a song it's so loving of chris to theow that in.

Finally got to listen to it entirely, and wow ! It's so soothing and beautiful.

The melody in the "..like an eeeagle / neeeeedle" lines, and the strings towards the end....so dreamy !

The first thing I saw when I woke up! Got the notification and I was so freaking excited! I listened to Hypnotised and I am definitely not disappointed. :) It's really beautiful and takes you to a whole different place! Can't wait for the EP!!!

By the way, can any of the mods please correct the spelling in the title to "Hypnotised" ?

I was too excited and made a little mistake there... :blush:

Absolutely brilliant! I hope Coldplay continue in this direction.

This song is so so good. The lyrics, the production, the instrumentation the ''Jay!'' part and the way Chris sings throughout the song, so much emotion so beautiful and it truely reminds me of their earlier years (reminds me a bit of Gravity somehow), the song has restored all my faith in Coldplay.

This is exactly the kind of music I was expecting from AHFOD with all the psychedelic imagery and stuff, I can hear a little bit of Pink Floyd in there.

Yes, so glad I'm not the only one thinking this - when I first heard it, I immediately thought Jonny's guitar sounds like David Gilmour's style in Pink Floyd here. Cool !

I remember when people were speculating before AHFOD that it could have a similar sound to this, after the Dark Side Of The Moon symbol after True Love and the artwork for AHFOD, so I'm glad we got a song like this!

Wow...

It's like a marriage between Parachutes and X&Y. And the best part? no synths and electronic stuff. It's so raw. That Jonny riff reminds me of A Rush of Blood to the Head (song) while the intro borrowed elements from Reign of Love and Atlas.

 

"It was dark, now it's sunrise."

Idk what you're listening to, but there's definitely some electronic stuff in there. The opening melody is a synth itself.

I woke up this morning, opened FB and the first post was a friend sharing the video.

This a very good song, it's clearly better than the whole AHFOD. It's the Moving To Mars of this era

I'm hearing piano and chimes but yeah there's some synth along with the chime-like sound though very minimal and not the typical synth of Mylo or AHFoD. More like The Escapist.

I'm really happy to hear that beautiful song just after " Something just like this ". The beginning made me think of the beginning of Daydreaming ( Radiohead ) and the whole song has a " Prospekts March " sound which is wonderful. I'm happy to hear that Chris and the band have kept such a musical identity !

The first thing I thought when I heard it was that it sounds like a great album/EP closer. It sounds great, it really does. A ray of hope after some of the worse songs on AHFOD.
