did Coldplay copy Electrasy?

Discussion in 'Recordings [BG]' started by The Mock Turtle Regulator, Aug 8, 2002.

  1. check this out- UK band Electrasy, who moved to the US, but are currently without a recording contract, claim that the new Coldplay single "In my place" was copied off an old song of theirs "strawberry sunrise".

    they've put it up for download here;


    I think it's very similar- anyone else?
  2. I dont know... Coldplay's music is very simple and not too original. Im sure that lots of their songs sound a lot like other songs by pure coincidence.

    I've got Parachutes, and while the songs are not ultra-complex, they aren't any simpler than other bands out there. I think the issue here is creativity, and by what I've heard from Coldplay, they don't need any help. Haven't heard the new single, so I can't comment on the specific song.
