Gorillaz – Silent Running.
Damon Albarn’s projects were all keeping us captivated until the explosion of excitement surrounding Blur’s reunion. It gave us a feeling of delightful surprise, and shifted the attention away from Gorillaz just a little, though they still had something special to give with their Cracker Island album. With strong singles like “Skinny Ape” and “New Gold” they’ve definitely made sure to stay in our thoughts and the momentum doesn’t seem to be slowing down any time soon! Today we get to experience the fifth taste of the album: the emotional yet energetic new single “Silent Running”. No matter what Damon has his finger in, it always sounds so good!
On “Silent Running,” Gorillaz teams up with Adeleye Omotayo, one of the band’s own backing singers to create a chill and dreamy tune with Albarn’s soothing voice weaving in perfectly. Despite its mellowness, the song is certainly no snooze-fest. Rather, it makes for picture-perfect listening on a lazy afternoon. Here, once again, Gorillaz demonstrates its versatility. Even when taking a track slower than usual, they still keep it captivating and stimulating. There may not be a huge amount happening here, but make no mistake: “Silent Running” is one smooth soundtrack that you won’t want to miss.
A few final words.
All in all, Gorillaz has done it again with their new single “Silent Running.” This track is the perfect balance of chill and energy, making for one smooth ride through a dreamy sonic landscape. It’s easy to get lost in its beauty and emotion, but not so much that you ever want it to end. Whether you’re looking for something mellow or an upbeat jam session, this song will have something for everyone! With such a great mix of musical styles, Damon Albarn proves yet again why he is one of the most innovative artists around today. So put on your headphones, relax back into your chair and let Gorillaz take you away with “Silent Running”.
