Q.  Hey Oracle, I heard that the song The Goldrush all members sing a verse each. Is this true? If so, who sings which verse?
Thank you!

I don't think that's correct. Will sings the first verse, Chris sings the second and Guy & Jonny are singing backing vocals throughout.
I've spoken about The Goldrush before, if you check using the search field on the right.

Q.  Hello Oracle, How are you?

I was wondering who sings in the song The Goldrush... ?
This song is very funny !

Thank you for your answer // I love reading all the answer you put in this website !

Best wishes to all members + to Phil Harvey !

It sounds like they're having a lot of fun during the recording of The Goldrush. Will sings the first verse, Chris comes in on the second verse but you can hear all 4 of the band throughout.
It reminds me of The Beatles outtake of And Your Bird Can Sing with less giggles.

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

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.

Q.  Hello Oracle!
This is my first question, as I hadn't seen very many about the song The Goldrush. I came across this gem, and was wondering if the boys had ever played it live anywhere, or if there was any footage of them singing it. I didn't seem to find any, I was just wanting to see who sings where. It really is quite the masterpiece.

Have a great day,

I love The Goldrush - it just sounds like they're having fun. You can hear everyone joining in. Will & Jonny are very distinctive - and Chris of course but I'm not sure if Guy is singing on this track. I've never heard of it being performed live anywhere so there's no footage to point you towards - sorry.
It reminds me of a cassette I have of The Beatles studio sessions where they are laughing and talking throughout.
