Today is a fantastic day. Why? Because Gorillaz just dropped the latest single from their upcoming Song Machine album of course! “Aries” follows the party starting “Momentary Bliss” and the breezy funk track “Desolé” as the third single from the highly anticipated project, and let me tell you, it is the perfect follow up.
This new track is a vibe and a half and features a couple of English music legends. Peter Hook and Georgia make up the engine of this song, laying down a hypnotic rolling bass line and a sedated yet driving drum kit. These two pieces fit like a glove with the spacey guitar and synth fills, setting a tranquilly energetic accompaniment for band leader, Damon Albarn’s, laid-back vocals.
This latest indie jam sets the perfect mood for almost any situation- whether you’re driving along the coast with your windows down or simply doing chores around the house, you’ll definitely have a little extra pep in your step. We’re loving every second of Gorillaz’ current indie kick, and while we still don’t have an exact release date for the rest of Song Machine, we’ll be impatiently smashing the repeat button on the three singles released so far. Stream “Aries” below. Enjoy!
