No it doesn't. I have been listening to U2 for a long time and now POTF
There styles are similar but those songs don't sound the same to me.
Listen to the first 15 seconds of both of these songs again from the links down below.
POTF - 15 Min Fame
U2 - October
From a musical point of view, the only common thing is the first minor->sus2 chord change, and that's it. I'd say everything else is in your head.
I was amazed when I found similarity in piano notes of '15 Min Flame' & 'October'. Not the whole song but intro of both tracks resembles each other.
Of course from musical POV, as POTF says "Words are such fickle visions...so pay attention to body language..."
There is some(very minor IMO) resemblance but i would have never discovered that if you would not have pointed it out.
This said, both are great songs and both are great bands.
Yes it is minor. Sometimes this kind of scenario gives me the deja vu effect. Especially during first listen, it happens for few songs in my head. I need to think & feel more from the heart as my name says Hardik
