Up&Up- Coldplay

“Up&Up” is a song by British rock band- Coldplay, released in April 2016. The songwriters Chris Martin, Guy Berryman, Will Champion, and Johnny Buckland have very thoughtfully written this song in encouraging and inspiring words.

The lyrics as the song title “Up&Up” reads, is suggestive of always looking up, aiming high no matter how hard it gets or how challenged we feel. It is an inspirational song for our entire human race in struggling times. The lyrics say that it’s time to work, fix things, hope and wait for the right opportunity. That it’s time we search for the meaning of life, look deeply in the world, find our purpose and pursue our dreams. The lyrics call us to relook our perspectives and understand that we can achieve it, if we do what we can as hard as we can.

The song closes with the words “Don’t ever give up” which is all this song is about. The playful rendition, very artfully depicting the beauty in the world through its imagery in the video is something that will warm your heart as it turns you away from the challenges the same world might pose.

The video is highly imaginative and shot beautifully with impressive visual effects. Once you watch the video, you might wonder if there can really be a world like this, you might wish and hope this was a dream that comes true. Take a look at it here..

This is one of Coldplay’s best, their most creative works and the message behind this song is even more heartwarming. Coldplay conveys something that we all need to hear when in distress, that things and times are hard right now, but you keep treading. Everything will eventually be okay!
