Coldplay’s ‘Up&Up’ in air: Arresting music video indeed


The latest Coldplay song Up&Up released on Monday with a music video that is just straight up beautiful. Eagles soar under the sea, synchronized swimmers do in a tea cup, and a dishwashing sponge becomes a football field. The band members are escalated so that they can walk among mountains and clouds, and the galaxy is what you see outside a train window.

The band’s website released it with the message, “We’re pleased to reveal the incredible new video for Up&Up, the anthemic third single from Coldplay’s current album, A Head Full Of Dreams.

Everyday things take on a fanciful note. And while that may not sound exceptional, it's visually a very arresting music video indeed.
