Powerplay: Gorillaz – Andromeda ( feat D.R.A.M.)

This weeks powerplay is a brand new track by Gorillaz – Andromeda ( feat D.R.A.M.)  taken from their forthcoming new album – Humanz

Released as one of four new tracks, “Andromeda” is a flashing number that’s only a heartbeat away from house. The song takes its name from a nightclub in Colchester that played soul music in the ’80s, something Albarn called “a positive thing in a quite grim world.” Gorillaz’ “Andromeda” connects those real life dots. It considers the club as the center of the universe, a safe place where the energy given off by the synths and the crowd act as dopamine hits. The song pairs whirring noises with soulful fills, minimalist but vibrant. D.R.A.M. adds his warm vocals to the margins, fleshing out harmonies and ad-libbing to create a full range of tones. As a virtual band, the Gorillaz aren’t constrained by genre or story—they can reinvent themselves endlessly to suit the needs of the time. They can only be limited by the imagination of their creators, and “Andromeda” feels limitless.
