The British band Gorillaz is the one who did it first. They are known for being the world’s first digital band and carrying a dystopian, cultist aesthetic.
They released the project “Cracker Island” last week, and loyal fans are happy the two-decade-old band is back in action and continuing to adjust to the myriad of cultural influences present in this ever-changing digital age.
Throughout the album, you will find surreal visuals in all of the songs that are a part of the band’s overarching narrative, along with the virtual characters 2D, Murdoc Niccals, Noodle, and Russel Hobbs, throughout their music videos and short films. “Cracker Island” is an exploratory collection of 10 tracks, the album has a presence of touching themes of self-discovery and transformation, and you can see a few special guests adding to the magic of this project, such as names like Adeyole Omotayo, Bootie Brown, Tame Impala, Beck, and Bad Bunny.
The album immerses you in a psychedelic soundscape, seamlessly blending electronic and acoustic elements. If you want to listen to a truly unique band, you can find this genre-expansive masterpiece on YouTube and other streaming platforms by Gorillaz.
