Gorillaz, the world's most successful virtual act, release their new single "Tranz". The groovy new track is the second single for the latest Gorillaz album 'THE NOW NOW'.
"Tranz' makes the most of Damon Albarn's haunting vocals, using spiralling synths to match a fragmented state of mind. Hot New Hip Hop love the track, highlighting the track as containing "one of the most immediately catchy hooks on the album, which makes it a great selection to kick things into gear... Albarn's voice is layered over itself in two octaves, allowing it to rise above the dynamic synth riffs that interlock at the song's climax."
Virtual group Gorillaz is singer 2D, bassist Murdoc Niccals, guitarist Noodle and drummer Russel Hobbs. Created by Damon Albarn and Jamie Hewlett, their acclaimed eponymous debut album was released in 2001, and their new album 'THE NOW NOW' is out now.
