Coldplay has released a bizarre new video for their third single titled Up&Up,from their current album, A Head Full of Dreams : I thought I’d post it because it shows everything beautiful around us,each part of the world and its opposite, so the imperfects of the world in all its greatness. But up is down, down is up, normally large concepts have been miniaturized and nothing is the same. With the help of directors Vania Heymann and Gal Muggia, the Biritsh band turned seemingly ordinary activities and images into the extraordinary:
While its overall tone is quirky, dreamlike and playful, it also makes some serious political points, with imagery including boats overcrowded with people, a beach with a huge concrete wall blocking the sea and children in a war-torn landscape.
Heymann and Muggia commented in a statement that they were “inspired by many collage artists, past and present. Hopefully the images do the rest of the talking.”
