Desperado Orchestra is back with the follow up to his 2016 eponymous EP, with the track “Outer Space”. The track is a groovy number that mixes a myriad of genres, from soul to electro, with just the right dose of funk. Desperado Orchestra is the project of multi-instrumentalist J Lawson, whose incredible life journey, which has seen him travel the globe, has led to the creation of his unique sound.
The track is a documentation of the highs and lows of his life. While he is currently based out of Hawaii, his life has been tumultuous to say the least. From experiencing homelessness, to serving a military term in Iraq, to teaching abroad in China, every experience has influenced his sound in its own unique way, making his sound as unique as his backstory. The track is a bit of a departure from his folksier sound, making the transition to a funkier groove on this track, while maintaining that classic soulful Desperado Orchestra sound. The track is a glimpse into J’s world, that leaves us anticipating his future releases.
