Musical Discovery: Audien

We have all been there: a song that we’ve been listening to on YouTube, Soundcloud or Spotify ends and we’re left with a random song which we don’t want to hear. If there’s one thing I’ve learned whilst doing these posts, it’s that listening to a song on auto-play or clicking on a suggested video on YouTube can help you find some amazing artists – the latter is how I came to find Audien.

Adventure of a Lifetime by Coldplay (Audien Remix)

As the track starts, emphasis is placed on pronounced piano chords, before Chris Martin’s unique and unedited vocals are introduced. Over time, the song creates the perfect atmosphere to prepare for a euphoric beat drop. Coldplay’s original single is feel-good on its own, but Audien takes this to another level and turns the track into a summer anthem.

The only thing that could be disappointing to some listeners is how the remix does not experiment with the vibrant guitar melody that is played constantly in the original. However, it would be pedantic to criticise the song for not using that guitar riff – either way, it is a phenomenal remix.
