TUNE Certain Animals - Tangerine
Tangerine is a harmonic blend of polyphony, distilled from the black-and-white images of London in the sixties. The time when members of The Kinks and The Beatles could be found there in the wild. Just like their idols, Certain Animals used whirling twelve-string guitars and a wonderfully grunting Höfner violin bass in the recordings. Tangerine evokes the atmosphere of the hip incrowd of the time and describes an obsessive romance with a royal touch. That obsessiveness is brought sweetly but can not resist the fact that - just like the song - it will eventually spin out of control. Tangerine is one of Certain Animals' softer songs from their upcoming debut album 'Songs To Make You Move' and it shows a different side of the band. A side that is not afraid to combine beautiful poppy melodies with a craving for the past and then entirely carrying it out using three-part vocals.
