L’Orange & Solemn Brigham – Vagrant

L'Orange & Solemn Brigham - Vagrant

L’Orange and Solemn Brigham release free single titled ‘Vagrant’.

Just before Autumn began to cleave leaves from the trees, Marlowe (producer L’Orange & emcee Solemn Brigham) released their debut, eponymously titled, roughshod rap record to widespread acclaim from fans. Despite being the duo’s debut album, the record had the type of organic chemistry you expect from well established groups – in part because the L’Orange & Solemn Brigham have been friends for nearly a decade and had been making music since the start.

Released on Mello Music Group, Marlowe is a triumph of ambition, a rap bricolage blending prohibition and civil rights-era samples with Asian psychedelic rock flourishes. Solemn is an artist perennially seeking something to fight for, channeling energy from the music of the civic rights era, stealing timeless rhythms and inflection from classic funk and soul. An old soul with original ideas, tapping into the eternal reservoir of Sam Cooke to Ice Cube, Otis Redding to Chuck D, Curtis Mayfield to KRS-One.
