Chill vibe, fantastic song, sublime video

I could see this in my top 10 or even top 5 one day (currently El Mañana, Empire Ants, Hong Kong, Every Planet We Reach and uhhhhh idk gotta think about what else)

The preview for the next song sounds great too

I haven't watched the video yet. The song's good but I feel like it's building up to a climax that never comes. It left me feeling a bit deflated.

I'll probably prefer it on repeat listens though.


e: Interesting that the Youtube version is nearly two minutes longer than the actual track. It looks like they had more video than song to work with so they repeated a bit to act as a long outro.

I like it, I'd have preferred that on the actual track.

Video is definitely good. I kind of like how they're all picking off something of Murdoc's ensemble in the video. Weird rear end meta building here we go again

First listen: yeah, this is definitely pretty good

Second listen: wow this will never leave my head

Re: video version vs. audio version chat, I think the main difference is the extended intro, and the outro someone else mentioned

I wonder how this is being funded since there's no album to buy and no tour to get tickets for. I doubt a drip feed of YouTube revenue and streaming fees will be enough to cover the production of a new song and video every month.

I'm sure stuff like their recent G Shock sponsor work went towards this. Probably see more brand stuff like that in the future.

I can't even buy the mp3 off of Amazon, and my torrent site doesn't even have it for download. This is bullshit Gorillaz! I don't want to stream!

I'm assuming this gets put on a compilation later, but still.

Yeah, this song was great.

I think they might actually be circling back round to some lore again, too (I wonder if it's gonna turn out that's not Murdoc on the back of that bike - just for a change). It's me, the guy who cares about Gorillaz lore.

Does Gorillaz have actual lore outside of the little ARG things they do? What are the implications of Murdoc holding that syringe at the end? I assume it's related to Noodle being worried about 2D, like Murdoc is drugging him or something?

Murdoc and 2D hate each other.

2D was never happier than in the Humility video when Murdoc was in jail. Russ even trips him as he rollerblades because he's upset that 2D is so happy.

In Murdoc's address to everyone about corona (yes, this is a thing) he named himself, Noodle, Russell and "the other one."

I think that's all it is.

Also, something about 2D's eyes are white now instead of black? I think that's a lore thing too.

Yes Gorillaz has plenty of lore(and notably occurs in real time), though most of it is centered in the first three "Phases"*, Phase 4 has been fairly light on especially significant lore

*these correspond more or less to a specific album or set of albums;

Phase 1: Self-Titled, G-Sides, and Laika Come Home

Phase 2: Demon Days, D-Sides, and the book Rise of The Ogre(long out of print but it's pretty easy to find scans of it online)

Phase 3: Plastic Beach, The Fall, and the various songs uncollected in album form(and indeed often don't have an official release at all) from this period that sometimes get collectively referred to as "Sea-Sides" by the fans(especially since there's been several fan made compliations that use that name or something similar)

Phase 4: Humanz, The Now Now, and Song Machine

yes, though it was probably heaviest back in the Demon Days era, and kind of stopped after Plastic Beach gently caress they even got an autobiography of the band published

also I guess I have to ask what sort of ARG things are you talking about. they used to have some really fun websites back in the day full of flash stuff and easter eggs

eh, its supposed to have mostly level off after the Now Now, the weirdest thing about the entire video is just Murdoc doing nothing but smiling srerenely the etnire time

To put things into context, I'm 29, my birthday is only about 11 days before the date Noodle's birthday is on(Halloween 1990), it was kinda surreal around the time Phase 4 promotional material started coming out that I realized that Gorillaz occur in Real Time in spite of being cartoon people, and that Noodle was in fact the same age as me

The CD has 10 tracks. That means that season 1 of Song Machine is either going to be 10 songs, or 9 songs plus the Song Machine theme tune.

On the other hand the fact that it’s called Season 1 means they can do this again next year 😻

Or it includes Machine Bitez and we've already had all the tracks.
