New stuff from old favourites

Coldplay- Every Teardrop is a Waterfall

It is not as good as this:

Or this:

But it is better than this:

And nowhere near as broody as this:

And it also has a sample from 'I Go to Rio' by Peter Allen.

Incredible. I really just want to get up and dance to it. Love the synths, the bit when the beat comes in, Chris's voice. What an uplifting tune and a surefire departure from their earlier work but an evolution of the last album. Begging to be remixed.

Rating: 8/10

Nicola Roberts- Beat of My Drum

It's always the quiet ones. The third Girls Aloud member to go solo, Nicola's debut packs so much more of a punch than Cheryl or Nadine's. She really is the underdog. The drum breakdown at the end is OH so necessary. The bridge almost doesn't fit in with the rest of the song, but after a few listens, you get over it. And that chorus.
Wow. So fierce.
Diplo/Major Lazer worked on this track and were responsible for Beyonce's underwhelming 'Run the World (Girls)' and out of the two, I know which one I'd prefer to listen to.


Rating: 7.5-8/10
