Sisters Marika and Miro Justad and Toby Kuhn have been making guitar inflected indie pop music together since childhood. They have been dubbed "girl group grunge-gorgeous indie" (The Guardian), "dreamy pop" (Billboard), and "windows down pop" (Rookie Magazine). In 2017 Tangerine recorded the singles “Fever Dream” and “Sly Moon” produced by Michael Shuman (Queens of the Stone Age, Mini Mansions) and Zach Dawes (Mini Mansions) and toured the U.S. with Bleachers (Jack Antonoff). TANGERINE recently moved from Seattle to Los Angeles, where they found inspiration for the "White Dove" EP- an 80s guitar-laced pop record about yearning, nostalgia, female friendship & the messiness of finding yourself in your 20s.
When Alexandra Niedzialkowski (vocals, guitar), Lance Umble (guitars, keyboards), and Leah Julius (bass), decided to release their debut album, the idea of chasing after labels wasn't an avenue they had much faith or interest in. They turned instead to the close-knit community of friends and fellow artists around them, launching a kickstarter campaign to raise a small amount of money to record, mix and master a self-release.

"You know that feeling when you find a song that's so moving, it actually gives you shivers? That's sort of what happened when I first heard 'Do You Remember,' the new single from Seattle three-piece Cumulus." – Nylon

With the record complete, and just a day away from putting in an order for their first 1000 CDs, Chris Walla approached the band about releasing the album through his own Trans- Records. It was only by chance that through the same community of artist and friends they relied upon, that their finished debut made it to the ears of the Death Cab For Cutie guitarist/producer. The attention and interest from an accomplished musician they all looked up to was a huge confidence boost for the band.
