Gorillaz Songwriting Experiment
Gorillaz Songwriting Experiment

Gorillaz are one of the most unique bands I've ever come across. They are a virtual, animated group on the outside, but a growing collection of musicians behind the scenes. This week I tried to write a song like them and it turned out pretty cool. I wrote the lyrics loosely based around the HBO series, Westworld, with Anthony Hopkins and many other talented actors and writers. I was also challenged by the Subreddit, Song-A-Week to write a NEW SCHOOL song. Since Gorillaz is set to release a new album this year (June 2018), I figured, what better influence to have on my original song than a band who's currently releasing material? - - - Download my music at http://www.benaaronmusic.com - - - Thanks for the comments and the love. -Ben
