WATCH: Coldplay drops new video unexpectedly – “Midnight”

Coldplay just released a new video for a song called “Midnight”, one that sounds like they’ve been studying from the school of Justin Vernon and Bon Iver. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but it sounds like a bit of a departure from the bright-and-sunny and into the gloom for the band that always feels a bit more bombastic about their approach to music.

The end and the build-up with that synth line really takes the mood to a different level, though — definitely stay with this one until the end.

I dig it.
