Coldplay Release Galactic Alternate Video for 'A Sky Full of Stars'

I can remember when Coldplay first burst onto the scenes in the early 2000s, and while their likely mantle as the defining mainstream rock band of the 2000s/2010s makes me more than a little sad inside, Parachutes was an undeniably great record, and it's hard to deny the appeal of early Radiohead-esque appeal of singles like "Don't Panic" and "Yellow." So, when did Coldplay become a band with vague-EDM lite bass drops in their tunes?

Spanish-language website Tecoapple just premiered an alternative version of Ghost Stories track "A Sky Full of Stars," and it's kind of a cool, trippy video with Chris Martin (should we begin to refer to him as Mr. Jennifer Lawrence?) and crew playing on a projected screen of swirling stars and galaxies. And I kind of like the track but it's such a massive departure for the band's sound that it's a legitimately shocking first listen. It's weird hearing EDM invade pretty much every corner of radio pop music.
