The band contains four animated members 2-D(vocals, keyboards), Murdoc Nicclas(bass Guitar), Russel Hobbs(drums), and Noodle (Guitar, keyboards, vocals).  Their fictional universe is presented in interviews, music videos and short cartoons, comic strips. Gorillaz music always makes a mix with feature artists, with Albarn as the only permanent musical contributor. 

The lead vocalist of the Gorillaz is Damon Albarn. Damon is famous as the lead singer of Blur. They worked cordially to make Britpop happen. The idea to form Gorillaz came after Albarn and Hewlett once watched MTV. Jamie Hewlett was a comic artist and writer.  With Gorillaz, Albarn deviated from the Britpop of his band Blur, searching for different music styles which contain hip hop, electronic music, and world music in an “eccentrically postmodern” way. The band’s 2001 debut album Gorillaz had dub, Latin, and punk influences that have gone triple platinum in the UK and double platinum in Europe. Their second album Demon Days have gone six times platinum in the UK and double platinum in the US.
