Hype Music // Coldplay Adventure Of A Lifetime

Hype Song of the Month // Coldplay Adventure Of A Lifetime

It’s a sad fact, but we don’t want a spot on the guest list for Adele’s billion-selling tea party from just-another-ballad Hello, which is a fine track in spite of everything. So we turn over to Coldplay’s latest ape-shit disco release Adventure Of A Lifetime, which bids some significant changes welcome from the limestone stadium rock boys around Chris Martin.

First, Adventure Of A Lifetime is a sparkling pop tune along with all the usual vague uplift. Yet it is also Coldplay’s first take on disco-funk, with a crisp guitar sequence throughout and some strutting rhythm-section work inluding some clap/double-clap party handclaps. The video for Adventure boasts a group of CGI-created chimpanzees dancing in the jungle, four of them are featured jamming in the main quartet resembling the likenesses of all Coldplay members. Symbolic references to Stanley Kubrick’s gorilla-focused scenes in 2001 may have been indended, but Coldplay’s apes prefer to make music and party instead of ending up in a clutter of violence.

Coldplay’s new album A Head Full Of Dreams will be out on December 4 and comes stuffed with guests like Beyoncé and Noel Gallagher.

Fashion Now // The World of cosmopolitan Style

If it’s good enough for Paris Hilton, who is rumored to shop here every now and then, it’s good enough for us. One of the 1000 and one things to do while in Paris is a trip over the city’s Triangle d’Or, i.e. the Golden Triangle between the Champs Elysées, Avenue Montaigne and Avenue George V – at least window shopping wise. Luxury fashion labels congregate behind grandiose entrances, leaving you dragging your jaw past fabulous yet unaffordable window displays. French people even have an expression for that: lêche-vitrine, translating window licking in English. It’s that what you’ll be doing in Triangle d’Or a lot. If it’s not only for window licking, then it’s an eldorado for fashionistas and victims of conspicious consumption. Paris’ first multi-brand designer boutique is Montaigne Market with over sixty international designers, offering seductive prêt-à-porter. You can meet the beautiful ones at the Market during Paris Fashion Weeks even at night, sipping champagne and having witty small talks over the most exclusive pieces of the next season. But even if you can’t afford that Christopher Kane leather dress at 2000 Euros, you can still evaluate who’s hot in the world capital of cosmopolitan style, even if it’s through a peephole or a shop window, respectively.
