The Future Cowboys' Life on Mars! album takes listeners on a
journey through outer space unlike any other. All listeners will feel as though
they are along for the ride and the destination is Mars. The band's second album, Life on Mars! imagines the future in the
year 2323 and tackles topics such as love, peace, social change, and the
Future Cowboys' sound can be described as a perfect mix of genres, sounds, and styles. Lovers of hip hop,
rock, Americana, EDM, and R&B will enjoy this album's fuse of fantastic musical
elements. Their expressive lyrics, vocal delivery, and amazing production are
just a few reasons why all should listen to their music and are likely to become
Future Cowboys fans in the process.
The album opens
with an introduction that gets everyone out of their seats, as "Wheels Fall
Off" will have listeners not only nodding their head, but wanting to dance. Filled
with upbeat songs perfect to jam to, such as "Cowboys from the Future" and
"Life on Mars," the album is also fantastically written, with lyrics and sounds
to tug on the heart strings in songs such as "Butterflies," "Heart in Action,"
and "More than a Miracle." This is a fun listen that provides a fully immersive
experience of amazing instruments and vocals, such as in "Party" and "The
Heat," where all listeners can hear the intricacies of both the beats and the music.
"The Heat," featuring Richie Cannata, also pays homage to New
Orleans legendary musical artist Dr. John, with the city serving as an
inspiration for the song. "Captain's Log" further engrosses listeners into
their "life on Mars" world through its great lyrical storytelling. The album is
great throughout, and finishes strong with "Home on the Range," a play on the original classic
song with its lyrics and melodic tone.
Future Cowboys' Life on Mars! album is definitely recommended, and its sound is not
only enjoyable, but one of a kind. From start to finish, listeners will not
hear another album like it. It invokes sounds to dance, vibe, and enjoy, all
while experiencing an epic and entertaining musical journey.
