Greetings gentlepersons. My name is Laurence, I play lead guitar in a fairly unknown band named Candidate that is putting out our debut album on June 10th - created in Lexington Ky & New York City.
I'm here at Coldplaying.com because for about the third time I've been told by fans that some of our stuff reminds them of Coldplay. While I don't hear it (personally I think we're more between The Stone Roses & The Cure), I love Coldplay and really appreciate the comparison. After hearing enough times I very slowly made the connection that perchance Coldplay fans might like our music.
So, here I am, humbly asking you fine people to take a moment and have a listen, you may find something you enjoy
Our 3 singles are up for free @ candidate.bandcamp.com
In particular, 'I'd Come Running' has received the most Coldplay comparisons: http://candidate.bandcamp.com/album/id-come-running
