Swiss musician Lazer Boomerang has his own way of coping with loved ones' loss, depression and heartbreak. As an orphan, he had to fight his way through life. Maybe that’s why his music always feels honest and optimistic, even in its darkest moments.
Lazer Boomerang's music has always been filled with melancholy, even when he hit the drums for his indie-rock band Rival Kings. And just when things started to kick off with chart-entering albums and bookings at big festivals, the band broke apart.
«I felt empty. I threw so much into those albums, which I still love deeply», he says. How does a drummer with no band transform his ideas into songs? By learning how to produce, play synths, arrange and bring ideas to life. «In hindsight, the breakup of his band was the most beneficial thing that could’ve happened to me as a musician and as a songwriter.»
He adds, "It gave me the opportunity to explore my musical abilities and discover my own creative voice."
