Following is a new release from Coldplay called “Christmas Lights,” and in pure Coldplay fashion, we have a subdued introductory, buildup, soaring keyboards, lots of talk about things shining and, of course, an ever ascending vocal part.

Of course, in parts, the new video is very similar to one of Coldplay’s newer tracks, “Life in Technicolor Part ii.” I think every subsequent Coldplay video should look like an elementary school production. I think they have a good theme going.
