Rapidly rising LA based duo Emotional Oranges have sold out shows across London, New York, LA, Toronto, Paris and Amsterdam and received widescale press and streaming support following the release of their debut project, The Juice Vol. 1.
The project saw them collaborate with Drew Love of THEY. to create some 2020 Dr Dre Vibes on ‘Someone Else’ and created other phenomenal chilled RnB tracks.
We caught up with the mysterious duo to talk about their creative process, favourite albums and their fans…
What does your creative process typically look like?
Write down creative bits that inspire us, whether it’s other songs, videos, art, film and then go into the studio and pull those up. Musically, sometimes it starts with a vocal melody or guitar loop to catch a feeling, but the concept (lyrically) and overall groove of the track are equally important.
What do you hope fans take away from your music?
The freedom to be able to create at their own pace with no boundaries or expectations on what it needs to be in order to be successful.
How would you describe your sound?
It’s all rooted in R&B but sometimes leans Pop, Alternative, Hip-Hop, Trip-Hop, Deep House…
What is something both of you can’t live without?
Spicy food. It’s more than just two of us 😉
What are your goals for 2019?
Release a few visuals for the EP, tour the world, do some remixes and start writing Volume 2.
What are your favourite albums of all time?
I’ll give you a few favourites from this decade! Frank Ocean — Nostalgia, Ultra, The Weeknd — House of Balloons, Kendrick Lamar — Section .80, Tame Impala — Currents, THEY. — Nu Religion: HYENA, The 1975 — ABIOR
