[Letters to…] Gorillaz

Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett 

I remember being very confused when I first saw Stylo on MTV. Usually music videos starred the artists but uh, no it was Bruce Willis I was seeing and I was pretty sure he does not sing (not professionally at least). And as if things weren’t strange enough, there goes 2D and Murdoc driving a car, escaping from Bruce. Not going to lie but this irked me. I was around 11 and electronic music clearly did not suit me until On Melancholy Hill. Gosh, I love that song till today.

I never thought that I would enjoy electronic music but somehow I did. Perhaps it is Damon’s soothing voice that made me fell in love with Gorillaz, or should I say overload, overload, overload with this British animated band.
