Emotional Oranges, the mysterious Los Angeles-based R&B-centric collective who have been sending trendsetters and tastemakers on both sides of the Atlantic running for cover, today release “Built That Way,” their latest track via Avant Garden. “Built That Way,” which speaks to having a transparent and honest relationship with your significant other even though that truth may pain you at times, was inspired by the sounds of The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill and Erykah Badu’sMama’s Gun. Emotional Oranges are the love child of these timeless sounds. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.
“Built That Way” sets the scene for the May 10th arrival of THE JUICE: VOL. I, the gently squeezed debut 8-song compilation showcasing the “faceless, nameless R&B twosome Emotional Oranges’ … upbeat, groove-filled R&B,” as cited by Complex. Ten days later in Toronto on May 20th, Emotional Oranges’ CHILL BABY, CHILL Tour commences at Mod Club. (Please see complete tour itinerary below.) Their previous releases have been lauded by the likes of Complex, Hypebeast, Ones to Watch, Vibe, Fader, Highsnobiety and more.

ABOUT EMOTIONAL ORANGES:
By early 2019, provocateurs extraordinaire Emotional Oranges had been unanimously lauded everywhere from Complex, Fader,Paper,VIBE, Highsnobiety, andHypebeast to DJ Zane Lowe of the BBC, MTV, and Beats 1. EO has established themselves as one of the most exciting new acts on the planet without ever even revealing themselves. Not much is known of the Los Angeles-based male/female collective, but it has been speculated that when Adele’s vocal coach and Drake’s engineer met at a bat mitzvah in 2017, the band was instantly born. A mix of funky bass, break-beat drums, and jazzy guitars creates a refreshing, retro sound with futuristic undertones. Crafting a sound that fits in the pocket between the likes of Anderson.Paak and Disclosure, EO look to pull listeners further into their enticing world. Michelle Obama and Guy Fieri have publicly championed the band. Avant Garden in tandem with Island Records celebrates the unblemished string of signature EO singles over the past year: “Motion” (official theme song for RuPaul’s Drag Race in 2018), and “Personal,” then “Hold You Back,” “Corners Of My Mind,” and “Built That Way” have brought EO a cult following, generating over 12 million streams globally.
