Another addition to the music review series Strange Music Fever.

Today we’re gonna look at the famous british band Gorillaz. Gorillaz is a musical project created in 2001 by British musician Damon Albarn and British cartoonist Jamie Hewlett. This project consists of the Gorillaz music itself and an extensive fictional universe depicting a “virtual band” of cartoon characters. This band is composed of four animated members: 2D (lead vocalist, keyboard), Murdoc Niccals (bass guitar), Noodle (guitar, keyboard, and occasional vocals) and Russel Hobbs (drums and percussion).

Gorillaz are famous for mixing a variety of music styles starting with hip hop ending with electronic music and dub with a little spice of psychedelic music. They are not as strange as the old psychedelic rock bands music vise but some of their songs have mind blowing and strange lyrics. Furthermore, Gorillaz have a talent of joining a variety of music genres, which brings special taste and atmosphere to all of their songs.

So let’s look at some songs:
