‘Outlaw’ by Irini Mando sounds like a wild cowboy dream come to life, but in musical form. The song’s lowered tempo with trap-like beats, and unique lyric delivery give it an urban feel. Further, the production makes use of a variety of instruments and electronic sounds to bring out the contemporary vibe.

The female powerhouse has played two gigs at Toronto’s famed Canadian Music Week. On her track Pink Noise, she collaborated with the Amy Winehouse Foundation. Talk of dreams coming true!
‘Outlaw’ is the singer-songwriter’s most recent release. The many sound effects used on the track play quite well with Irini’s wide-ranging vocals. Moreover, the chorus is extremely catchy, and the lyrics are chic and confident.

She accepts being an outlaw who is only dependant upon herself. In that way, she fully embodies the savage woman. With zero expectations from others, she becomes a heartbreaker who can leave any mess in a cloud of dust, and move onto her next rowdy adventure.
