With a fresh sound, delicate funkiness and appreciation for a lineage that stretches far and wide – Tangerine respect their roots, as they throw a new-wave fit. I was getting tired of every new-wave band that I would find. Not only because they weren’t technically new-wave, they also did not have an inspiring sound. But this was about to change, as I found Tangerine. Their newly released album “Pale Summer” on Swoon Records settles the score for me. As I find the 80’s new-wave loveable, I also like the renewed approach and baseline-heavy sound. Some of the rhythm is funky as hell, the lyrics sound relevant and the singer is top-notch in this sound-scape. Nothing feels malplaced, everyone has their place and their ambition can be heard throughout. Find it over at bandcamp, but stream and listen to it down below.
