Provocateurs extraordinaire Emotional Oranges has been unanimously lauded everywhere from Complex, Fader, Paper, VIBE, Highsnobiety, and Hypebeast to DJ Zane Lowe of the BBC, MTV, and Beats 1. Emotional Oranges has established themselves as one of the most exciting new acts on the planet without ever even revealing themselves. Not much is known of the Los Angeles-based male/female collective, but it has been speculated that when Adele’s vocal coach and Drake’s engineer met at a bat mitzvah in 2017, the band was instantly born.
A mix of funky bass, break-beat drums and jazzy guitars creates a refreshing, retro sound with futuristic undertones. Crafting a sound that fits in the pocket between the likes of Anderson.Paak and Disclosure, Emotional Oranges looks to pull listeners further into their enticing world. Michelle Obama and Guy Fieri have publicly championed the band. Avant Garden in tandem with Island Records celebrates the unblemished string of signature Emotional Orange singles over the past year: “Motion” (official theme song for RuPaul’s Drag Race in 2018), and “Personal,” then “Hold You Back,” “Corners Of My Mind,” and “Built That Way” have brought EO a cult following, generating over 12 million streams globally. Their 8-song debut album, The Juice: Vol. 1 (released May 10, 2019) is worth the squeeze.
