Tangerine is the kind of band that puts a smile on your face. They've been playing locally around Seattle for a few years now and have started to hit the summer festival circuit, as well. Their bright pop sound with floating guitar tones and sweet vocals make them one of those bands that you don't have to take hours upon hours to analyze and deconstruct, as if you're reading a Descartes treatise. The band does move you, however. In a way that those two-minute summer pop songs moved listeners coming over the radio waves in those pastel-colored cars of the 60s. In short, Tangerine is a breath of fresh air.
