Photo Diary | Emotional Oranges

by Morgan Vickery

R&B-centric duo, Emotional Oranges, is the LA-based collective honing their craft as both trendsetters and tastemakers. Established as one of the most exciting new acts in sonic realms, they hide behind the veil that separates private and public life to shield their true identities. Rumors have circulated that Adele’s vocal coach and Drake’s engineer met at a bat mitzvah in 2017, prompting the creation of Emotional Oranges. Funky bass, break-beat drums, and jazzy guitar riffs define the fusion of their retro and futuristic sound. Their latest track, “Built That Way,” is a testament to this style, inspired by the sounds of ‘The Miseducation’ of Lauryn Hill and Erykah Badu’s ‘Mama’s Gun;’ which speaks to the trials of honesty within a relationship, even if transparency causes unexpected pain. Emotional Oranges share a glimpse of their mysterious lives throughout a mini promo trip in NYC and return to their LA recording studio.
