I wasn’t thrilled with the new album from Gorillaz, but Stylo is definitely a highlight, and a great choice for the lead single.
Last night, the musicians behind the virtual band played the song live on the Colbert Report, without the usual animation smoke and mirrors. A rare occurrence!
Everyone’s sounding fabulous and looking ridiculous, it’s great. I have no idea why the drummer’s doing rim clicks on the snare instead of laying down the fat backbeat that powers the recorded version of the song though.
