Q. Hello Oracle! :)
I was listening to one of my favorite Coldplay songs the other day, and I noticed when the lyrics
"There's a tiny little crackle on the telephone line
Saying what use the metal if the metal don't shine?
She said bring me back a ring cause I really want one.." are sung, there is a very deep voice audible in the background. Who is that? I didn't think it was Chris because you can hear him singing clearly in his normal-high voice. (if you can see what I mean).
Thanks so much for answering!
Much love, Christianne


The Oracle replies:

We've had a similar question to this before. Unfortunately, The Goldrush is one of those songs where it's hard to know who was singing what because there are so many voices. You can hear Will & Chris taking lead vocals and Jonny often sings low backing vocals (as do Will & Chris). In this case I'd assume you can hear Jonny & Will.
