Emotional Oranges Share New Project ‘STILL EMO’

It could be their broadest release yet...

Emotional Oranges have shared their new project ‘STILL EMO’ in full.

The reclusive R&B production team are working with alacrity, continually producing adventurous future-soul. Combining once more, Emotional Oranges have teased their latest project across a volume of thrilling single releases.

Out now, ‘STILL EMO’ finds the pair infusing personal feeling into their bold R&B template. Two musicians in different spaces in their lives, A and V use this sense of contrast to enliven their work.

Guests include the majestic Tkay Maidza, Aayana, Nonso Amadi, and the ever-wonderful Zhu, each adding something different to ‘STILL EMO’ as a whole.

Emotional Oranges’ A comments…

‘STILL EMO’ marks our fifth project in four years, and the second (independent) tape in the last eight months. It’s the most fun I’ve personally had making music, experimenting both sonically and thematically. We’re in dramatically different places in our personal lives since starting this group – I’m recovering after ending a four-year relationship while V is thriving in her relationship. It’s helped give a new perspective to the songs we’re writing. 

‘STILL EMO’ is a mindset. For us, it’s all about still having that same passion and attitude towards whatever it is that you love. Sonically, we wanted to pay homage to all sides of our inspirations – the underground dance record ‘Not Like This’ and the Pharoah Monche influenced ‘Be Somebody’, to the Amapiano grooves of ‘Not Worthy’ and 90’s Bad Boy era ‘Wrong Hands’. We’ve had the luxury of touring almost every continent and tried to incorporate different bits of things that have connected with us.

Tune in now.
