Tangerine Debuts CHERRY RED Video via KEXP
LA-via-Seattle indie pop trio Tangerine - Korean-American sisters Marika & Miro Justad and Tobias Kuhn - will release their new White Dove EP this Friday, October 19 via AWAL. Produced by Sanj & Luca Buccellati (Tei Shi),White Dove is sad enough to dance alone to, but bumps hard enough for your next crazy night out.
Today, KEXP debuted the video for second album single "Cherry Red," which takes listeners to the sunny beaches of a deserted seaside town, as the anthemic track reminiscences about girlhood nostalgia and the crazy things teenagers get into.
"The opening lines - 'we used to wait for the info, in your car drinking bright day glo' are about driving around North Seattle in my friend Annie's red Ford Echo in early high school," lead singer Marika explains. "The band all recently watched Lost Boys, the 1980s vampire movie set in a small California seaside town, and the aesthetics of that really spoke to us so we drew on that a little bit as well. We directed the video ourselves and took turns shooting it on Miro's iPhone 8 with help from her boyfriend Richie Owen."
"Cherry Red" follows the album's first dream pop single "Local Mall," debuted by Billboard. The band will be playing new tracks from the EP and more atMoroccan Lounge in Los Angeles on November 28, opening for Swedish-Australian twin sister duo Say Lou Lou.
Marika, Miro and Tobias have been making music together since childhood. In 2017, Tangerine moved from Seattle to Los Angeles to pursue music full time. After recording singles "Fever Dream" and "Sly Moon," produced by Michael Shuman (Queens of the Stone Age, Mini Mansions) and Zach Dawes (Mini Mansions), and touring the U.S. with Bleachers, they created the next step in their journey, White Dove.
