Hey New York! We're hosting *TWO* shows - one on 4/28 and one on 4/29, both in Brooklyn at Our Wicked Lady. It's gonna be rad. Details here and here.
We're hosting Mop Mop Sound System at Berlin's Badehaus on April 20th. RSVP here because it's going to be a good time :)
On Melancholy Hill kicks off with a drum beat and floats away to a heavenly atmosphere that is covered with a feeling of melancholy (fitting title then, eh?) and longing. Even before Damon sings a single lyrics, the song gives me a really sad feeling of someone looking back, missing something.
Damon really hit's his stride here with all the makings of a pretty damn perfect pop song. It has a sad nature, but parts of it point towards a sunny feeling deep below. Just like Rhinestone Eyes, On Melancholy Hill is a song that I loved right from the get-go. It is just an incredible song that is different from anything on this album, or in the Gorillaz song collection in general. It has pure feeling and substance.
Damon sings in a really emotional tone. But even if he didn't sing you would get the feel that this song is drenched with feelings of melancholy. I can picture this gorgeous hill that is peaceful, elegant, and full of color. Damon is there sitting, waiting for you to listen. How is that for a music video? - We All Want Someone
