There are a lot of Gorillaz songs that paint a very singular picture. They often do so with a combination of music and animations. But there's one song in particular that has always been a favorite amongst fans. It's "Cracker Island," which came out in June of this year. Here are a few things you should know about the song.
The first is that it is a great song. The chromatic lead vocals and laser focused beat make for a terrific soundtrack for any busy street. Secondly, the lyrics are very symbolic. They introduce a new storyline. One thing to keep in mind is that this isn't the first time that a band has used this technique. In fact, they have had some success with it in the past.
The song is part of the band's new album 'Music Machine: Season 1'. Other tracks on the album include the aforementioned "Cracker Island," the album's title track and the song "Desole," which is a French-English song that features singer Fatoumata Diawara.
"The Glitter Freeze" is another standout. It's a track that lays out a number of apocalyptic ideas. It's also the album's most lyrical track. However, it's also a song that's likely to be overlooked by most.
As for the song's most impressive gimmick, the song features the words "Desole" in both English and French. This is a very small feat since the song is only about a minute long.
Aside from the "Desole" track, the other notable item on the 'Music Machine: Season 1' is the aforementioned "Cracker Island." It's been a fan favorite since its release in June.
