Tangerine -- Sugar Teeth

Though Sugar Teeth was released in February, Tangerine's bright guitars and airy vocals are ideal for blasting during a languorous summer twilight. The trio is comprised of sisters Marika and Miro Justad and Toby Kuhn. The three had a band in high school, split up after graduation, but reunited when they found they missed that special spark of playing together. That sense of happiness and trust comes through in these four songs: the off-kilter stop-start of "Sunset" and the burbling bass lines throughout the songs come from a special type of trust.

While "Sunset" starts the EP starts off with a punch, relaxing down into the imminently danceable "Wild at Heart" and concluding with the dreamy, Twin Peaks-ian "Sugar Teeth." Tangerine brings a synth-pop kick (with none of the synths, thankfully) to garage pop, giving a contemporary spin to nostalgic music. Sugar Teeth feels like a great showcase of things to come.
