Before the stadiums, when it was all Yellow

In some ways it’s hard to recognize the festival headliners of today in the winsome, melancholy indie rock yearbook photo that is 2000’s Parachutes. But the heart of the band, on open display in the soaring chorus of “Trouble” and the super-sweet charm of “Yellow,” remains unchanged. In the eerie, liquid guitars and chiming, emotional wrangles of “Shiver” and the haunted late-night paranoia of “Spies” shine the songwriting talents that propelled Coldplay into stadiums.
