the piano is overtly confusing and transforms “strange timez” into a hypnotic, droning piece of art. the out of bounds piano riff is the central pillar of this drunkenly electronic, shroomed-out, acid trip of a song: this is a foreshadowing of robert smith’s upcoming comeback trilogy:

Definitely one of the most abstract, odd, & "Strange" songs to come out from Gorillaz from a while, it's a banger though!

(Also, Robert Smith looked silly AF in the music video tbh)

I'm going to be honest here, I know people really enjoy this but I'm not really digging it. Found it quite average, I'm not the biggest fan of Robert Smith's voice and quite frankly hated the vocals on 2D's verses. I can give it credit for creating a juxtaposition between the chorus and the verses and having the song explode so drastically and the production is also pretty dreamy and fitting, I just found Robert Smith quite boring on this and 2D was non-essential.

definitely one of my favorite singles of 2020: a gorillaz coastal dance party plus the cure ?? This is the best concept ever , and it really works. “strange timez” is distinctive in that it simultaneously retains an 80s and a 20s vibe.

a scathingly drunk, shroomed-out song
