Emotional Oranges is a rising LA-based duo. Not too long ago, they released a lyric video for their “Hold You Back” single.
Emotional Oranges – “Hold You Back”
“I’m so over getting over all these fools that don’t value my time. I’m so over getting over all these losers that don’t nurture my mind. I got tired of the lies, I can see through your eyes. You can say, you can, what you want but I still don’t want you.” – lyrics
Emotional Oranges have quickly established a reputation for revealing visually stunning videos. This one is no different. The duo explained the scenario:
“The muse character seduced her man in “Motion” because she was just looking for something temporary. She ended up taking it “Personal” and falling for him. Also, after things didn’t work out, she got tired of dealing with the same drama and left him for a girl in “Hold You Back”, which concludes the series.”
‘Hold You Back’ contains a relatable storyline, lovely pop vocals, and dreamy instrumentation flavored with modern R&B, electro-pop, and dance elements.
“We wanted to make something more relaxed that still maintained the groove we’ve established with our first 2 songs. Also, we were inspired by the guitars on Sade’s ‘No Ordinary Love’ all the way over to the drumbeat on Drake’s ‘Just Hold On, We’re Going Home.’” – Emotional Oranges
