Emotional Oranges Plays With a Sensual Double Entendre in "Just Like You"

image

Masked musical duo of the decade, Emotional Oranges seems to approach most things with a double meaning. Even the name, Emotional Oranges, is appropriately a nod to '90s R&B but also a shout out to top-shelf maryjane. Fittingly enough, their most recent single, "Just Like You" (Aug. 23) may seem like your typical love song but if we know Emotional Oranges at all, there is probably more here than meets the eye.  

Holding onto their anonymity in order to achieve true artistic freedom, the success of the collective thus far is a testament to the power of really, really good music. And more really really good music is on the way, with "Just Like You" rolling onto the scene as the first single off their forthcoming EP  _The Juice Vol. II  _due Oct. 25 and inspired primarily by The Weeknd's Trilogy.

"Just Like You" encompasses that same intoxicating vibe which made the world smitten to Emotional Oranges in the first place. The combination of the smooth, effortless vocals representing both the female & male vocal timbre over infectious 808s, a resonating synth, and grooving bass is both hypnotizing and deeply gratifying.   image

The lyrics can certainly be described as deeply gratifying as well, dripping with that lust which may bring a bit of color to your cheeks and that is exactly the point. Representing the pull of both emotional and physical intimacy, the double entendre present here is a comment on longing for your lover while defending everyone's right the feel on themselves every now and again... and again and again. The pair shared with _Highsnobriey _the natural development of the dual meaning,

_"We started off writing about the double standard around women being open about masturbating... But it's really just a love song about passion and longing for your partner when they're not around." _

In addition to the reveal of their upcoming project, the single accompanied the announcement of their first world tour, making appearances in the US, Europe, Japan, Australia and New Zealand (full tour dates below). The tour follows their debut four shows in the US that sold out immediately. With this came a personal message from the duo themselves,     image
