"On Melancholy Hill" is the third single from British virtual band Gorillaz' third studio album, Plastic Beach. Jamie Hewlett and Pete Candeland take us on an undersea adventure which encapsulates band member Murdoc Niccals's statement that "The Melancholy Hill - is that feeling, that place, that you get in your soul sometimes, like someone's let your tyres down. It's nice to break up the album with something a little lighter. It's good to have something that's a genuine pop moment on every album. And this is one of those."
