The video follows Gorillaz bass playing demigod Murdoc Niccals through
a dangerous trip to the mainland from his new home on Plastic Beach –
the namesake of the new record. Something goes badly wrong and Murdoc,
guitarist/Cyborg Noodle and vocalist 2D end up in a high speed car
chase with a local cop and an unknown assailant. Cyborg Noodle’s
circuits start failing and 2D fears for their lives as the gun toting
bounty hunter draws ever closer… Mighty Murdoc remembers, “Someone was chasing me through the desert!
Luckily I had my camera crew following me and they captured it all on
film, so I’ve cut it up and stuck it back together for my Stylo video!
That’ll learn me not to leave the safe, toxic, isolated haven of
Plastic Beach…” Murdoc’s new stomping grounds can now be thoroughly explored with the
launch of www.Gorillaz.com relocated from the now defunct Kong Studios
(RIP) to the band’s newly constructed island hideaway at Plastic
Beach. Stylo is directed by Jamie Hewlett and produced by Cara Speller for
Zombie Flesh Eaters, with live action through HSI Productions in Los
Angeles, and animation by Passion Pictures in London. Plastic Beach will be released by Parlophone in the UK on March 8th;
Stylo is available for download now.
