Coldplay’s ‘Charlie Brown’ Video Features Eye-Catching Visuals + Street Romance

It doesn’t include any cartoons or Vince Guaraldi piano, but Coldplay‘s new video clip for ‘Charlie Brown,’ their latest single from the chart-topping ‘Mylo Xyloto,’ does feature plenty of eye-catching visuals — along with all the soaring melody you’ve come to expect from the band.

Helmed by Mat Whitecross, who directed the 2006 documentary ‘The Road to Guantanamo,’ the ‘Charlie Brown’ video depicts the band playing in the middle of a rowdy crowd, most of whom are bedecked with glowing wristbands that light up in time to the music, with pulsing neon lights strobing the audience. Interspersed with the rave clips are scenes of a young couple (the female played by Antonia Thomas from the British sci-fi series ‘Misfits’) who make romance on the streets of London.

The third single from ‘Mylo Xyloto,’ ‘Charlie Brown’ finds Coldplay in urgent, uptempo form, and singer Chris Martin indicated it was one of his favorite tracks from the record last year, when he told NME “We know our lyrics are a bit s— … But the ones for ‘Charlie Brown,’ I like them a lot.”

What do you think? Take a look at the video, and let us know in the comments.
