Austin City Limits "Coldplay"
Airs Saturday, April 27 at 11:00 PM

Over the past five years a group of guys from England have been combining heartfelt ballads with masterful rock to become one of the biggest bands in the world. Coldplay has become a critical, commercial and fan favorite with their moody and dramatic pop rock.

Parachutes, the 2000 debut album from the London quartet, was “dreamy, regretful pop with melodies that dog you like a missed opportunity” (Entertainment Weekly). This release contained the anthem “Yellow” and earned the band their first Grammy for Best Alternative Music Album.

The band’s follow up release, 2002’s A Rush of Blood to the Head, earned them even more Grammy recognition — including another Best Alternative Music Album award, a Record Of The Year award for “Clocks” and a Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocal award for “In My Place.” Rolling Stone called this release “a nervier, edgier, thoroughly surprising album.” Critics and fans were in for another surprise with 2005’s X&Y, which Blender called a “masterpiece.” Spin wrote: “By ratcheting up their guitars and still singing about everyday themes, Coldplay are recasting their nerdy-student Britpop as Important Rock Music without sacrificing the homespun vibe that allowed Martin’s fans to believe that he wrote a song for each one of them and called it ‘Yellow’.”
