Black Tangerine Biography

The poppy, hum-inducing, delightfully danceable and retro-influenced Black Tangerine recently rose from the ashes of the prominent Portland band called Water. Now, with a slightly different lineup and a new lease on its musical life, Black Tangerine fulfills the promise of its accomplished predecessor, its muscular attitude and a shiny top-40 sound.

Black Tangerine plays simple, rather unadorned and unadulterated, good ol’ fashioned rock ‘n’ roll with serious pop melodic fireworks. They combine elements as diverse as Americana, Brit Rock, power pop from the 80’s and New Wave to form a sound as ageless as it is unabashedly “retro.” Black Tangerine’s brand of rock in its purest form puts them in the same categories as similarly timeless bands as diverse as Foo Fighters, Paul McCartney, The Replacements or even The Hives or The Killers. Like all those bands (many of which the members of Black Tangerine consider influences), you’ll also hear heavy reminders of early 80’s radio, with bands like The Fixx, The Tubes or Journey coming to mind.

Still, their hummable, poppy melodies stand on their own throughout time – as relevant now as it would’ve been if they had been released in any recent decades.
