Back in 2014 Tangerine put out a couple tracks on an EP called Behemoth! One of those songs, “Nothing Better,” landed on my list of best songs for that year. Since then they’ve released a couple singles and transitioned from Seattle to Los Angeles.
“Local Mall” is the first new music from their upcoming EP White Dove, which comes out 10/19. The band directed the video for the song, shot on an iPhone 8, which you can see below.
Lead singer Marika Justad has a deep, breathy delivery offset by the sweetness of the guitar chords. The song finds joy in youthful discovery and the existential dread of getting older.
