outer limits ep

Singer/songwriter India Shawn’s latest project, Outer Limits, is a collaborative piece with renowned producer/songwriter/singer James Fauntleroy.  Complete with the experimental sounds famously executed by Fauntleroy and his 1500 or Nothin’ crew, Outer Limits plays like a sonic journey through 80s R&B and beyond.  Groovy funk synths, introspective but universal lyrics and danceable melodies display the effortless connection between both songwriters.

One favorite, “Floating Away,” which features Fauntleroy as an accompanied singer, is thick with 90s flavor.  The sensualness of the track comes from how well the singers complement each other over the cool snares.  You can check out the visuals here. Another highlight is “One Sun,” a lyrical conception of love and universality. Shawn’s vocal talent is paramount, standing out amidst the soft percussion and minimal instrumentation.

I actually had the opportunity to attend the Outer Limits release party last night and I was very impressed with Shawn’s delivery and energy throughout her performance of the EP.  Flirtatious, humble and commanding, she gave her fans and loved ones a show completely reflective of her appreciation and hard work.
