Better Than: Standing out in the heavy rain.

If you ever wondered what the long term effects of Coldplay might be, you need look no further than Bastille. The chart topping synth heavy four piece are led by singer/songwriter Dan Smith who turned 14 in the year 2000. That is the age where musical tastes are formed, so it is no coincidence that the year 2000 is when Coldplay's debut album "Parachutes" was released as was U2's "All that You Can't Leave Behind."
