Groundbreaking multimedia collective Gorillaz are the first face of Clash 118.
20 years on from their debut album Gorillaz are still eclipsing boundaries, with their Song Machine project re-writing the rules, and connecting them to a cross-generational creative landscape.
But it goes further than this. Whether they’re linking with slowthai or Robert Smith, Gorillaz move with purpose, constructing alternative narratives during a time when escapism has never been so needed.
Clash joins Gorillaz to explore their potent renewal and creative regeneration in this exclusive and in-depth cover feature, one that explores their relationships, future projects, and their new Fred Perry collaboration.
As Noodle puts it: “It’s all about energy. There is beauty in combining energy that can bring to a positive combustion.”
Also featured in this magazine are incendiary West London rapper Central Cee, BRIT Award winning alt-pop auteur Griff, left-field voyager Laurie Anderson, returning goddess Laura Mvula,Stalk Ashley, Rochelle Jordan, and more.
