Gorillaz – Fire Flies Mp3 Download
Gorillaz continue to roll out singles ahead of the “The Now Now” release date.
Gorillaz new album, The Now Now, doesn’t drop until June 29th, but the cartoonist band consisting of 2-D, Noodle, Russell, and Murdoc Ace continue to release new music coming off the project.
Their latest single, “Fire Flies”, is one of their heaviest so far. The song is not as cheerful as the name would suggest. A lumbering bass line trudges the song forward, while a rising brass line creates an air of despair and hopelessness. Like Sisyphus attempting to push the boulder up the hill, the song invokes the image that however the journey will never come to a close, and if it does, it likely wont end well.
In contrast to the upbeat and light “Humility,” “Fire Flies” builds up to a big emotional finale that grips the listener. Take a listen below.
