Sorry Coldplay, This Is ROYWORLD You're Living In, Baby!

My apologies to any Coldplay fans but I personally HATE Coldplay's new CD, VIVA LA VIDA. I especially dislike the way all the radio stations from FM to XM are whoring up the first track 'Violet Hill' which is the most meh, blah, and tepidly mediocre single from Coldplay in years. But that's the standard modus operandi for most stations- it's all HYPE, HYPE, HYPE for the established bands which leaves little air time for something newer and more interesting.

I found something newer and more interesting anyway. They're called ROYWORLD and they remind me of Coldplay when Coldplay used to rock. ROYWORLD also performs this one song entitled 'Elasticity.' *sigh* Yes, they wrote a song about Elastic City. How could I not be totally in love with them? ROYWORLD's latest release is the melodic and super catchy 'Dust' and it secures a place as the Infidel Jam Of The Month. Oh, and just because the song is called 'Dust' and the video is full of actual, you know, dust it's still completely safe for those with allergies. The video should have a disclaimer....Will Not Cause Watery Eyes, Congestion, Sniffling, Or Wetting Your Pants While Sneezing.

ROYWORLD- DUST

I have never heard of them until right now. They are good Elastic! (I know that's news to you) I think they need to look for a cleaner place to shoot their video's though:)

I am so glad it wasn't that OTHER group I DON'T like. "Roidworld". They really stink and they give me a pain in the A** to listen to them:) Sorry. That was bad!

Hey It's Di said...

Oh by the way, I was totally FIRST!!

And Second. . does that still make me number two?

very cool, elastic. i always love your music recommendations. and this is funny because my little bro just posted about how he adores coldplay's new album and insists i buy it. meh, i've never been a fan. but i love my bro so i better humor him.

NOBODY said...

Dangit. I could have been sorta second, but blogger bailed on me.

I'm usually at a complete loss when it comes to your music references, because I am cultarded. And true to from, I've never heard of this band, but I really liked it. It makes me feel kind of cool that even if I haven't heard of them, I like a song Elastic likes.

And, i'm certain allergies don't cause the wet-pants sneeze. Unless giving birth is an allergy.

I like Aubrey heard it was good stuff, I like their sound although a bit whiney at times. It depends on my mood.

I think I want to take up residence in the land of Roy. Thanks for sharing.

I know that the name ROYWORLD totally stinks. I was watching this short BBC interview with them and the lead singer said he saw a bowling alley named ROYWORLD in Cardiff, Wales and he thought it was so bizarre so he suggested it as a band name. The other guys thought it was revolting and so they kept it. :)

I predict that this song will be the most overplayed in the Infidel Household for Summer 2008.

I love me some elasticity! It's a beautiful homage

I can smell the nacho cheese now and oh the mountain dew!

ELASTICWAISTBANDLADY said...

Forget the homage and bring on the FROMAGE!!!!

CHEESE CHEESE CHEESE CHEESE CHEESE

Okay, they were good. I am a die hard Coldplay fan though. Sorry, please don't send me away.

Klin said...

Hey I like 'em. I like good music. They classify in my book.

Sketchy said...

Personally I like the chicken neck guy.

compulsive writer said...

Are you sure they didn't write Elasticity about you? Cuz I'm betting that secretly it's about you. It's all about you.

Nancy Face said...

Elastic City! Yeah!

The music video is awesome! I liked all the dust...and chicken neck guy...and the song, too!

Geosomin said...

Hey - very nice. I like.
I like this a lot - reminds me a lot of Death Cab for Cutie and Coldplay.
Haven't heard Coldplay's new album yet (too busy to go pick it up and don't listen to the radio). I'm excited about it as it's produced by Brian Eno (who I like), so it may be a bit different...now you've made me a bit nervous.

I *will* track down this album tho. I"m always looking for new music...thanks :)

Suburban Hippie said...

I like it - sorry.

Anna Maria Junus said...

Okay, that lead singer is cute.

I never did get the fascination with Coldplay.

wynne said...

I donno...I couldn't stop coughing while I watched this, and WHAT was with the stuffed fox? No complaints about the song though. Ees nice.

wynne said...

(And I still like Coldplay. You can throw rocks at me if you want, but I don't think you can throw them aaaaaallll the way over heeeeeere. Please do try, though.)

Ashley said...

That was beautiful. And hysterical - LEASH. *snort*

I gave birth standing up in a birth center with my first... the second, I hope to be in the bathtub at home. This was great to read.

Thanks for sharing!
