THE CREAM TANGERINES: ‘The Cream Tangerines’ EP


THE CREAM TANGERINES - 200 - logo - January 2013THE CREAM TANGERINES are a a young three-piece from Leicester consisting of two brothers and a cousin whose music belies both their years and their name!

I don’t suppose it matters the reason as to why you are initially attracted to a band, just so long as something makes you check them out. In this case, it was the name THE CREAM TANGERINES conjuring up images of some trippy psychedelic band that had me.

But these guys are not what I expected. In fact, they couldn’t be much further from my preconceived notion!

They have been loosely described as a ‘lo-fi garage rock’ band but from what I’ve heard, I’d say they were just as much a scuzzy-blues rocking band with little jazzy influences. There’s also a bit f a retro, Seventies rock thing going on too.

(But then, what does it matter what I think – you can decide for yourself as their debut, eponymous EP is streamed in full below.) 

Support for THE CREAM TANGERINES has already come in the form of BBC Introducing and Amazing Radio, and I fully expect the band’s early promise to be confirmed with their next release, on which I believe studio work is soon to commence.
