The folk duo Tangarine consists of the twin brothers Arnout and Sander Brinks. Their new album 'There and Back' contains the best music that this unique pair has made so far. The new record, which was released on September 23, 2016, is full of inspired, pure, and personal music. The recordings took place earlier this year in Tucson, Arizona, at the studio of the glorious roots band Calexico. Calexico front men John Convertino and Joey Burns also form Tangarine’s rhythm section on There and Back.

“Certain people decide to be songwriters, but these guys just have to write songs,” said drummer Convertino, talking to a documentary crew about the brothers. “If you have songs that are so complete and so natural,” Convertino added, “it's easy to play, too.” Joey Burns also praised the brothers: “They are very talented as songwriters, singers and performers.” Convertino and Burns joined the brothers for a rousing and sold out release show, that received rave reviews in the press.

The album There and Back is the sequel to Move On, which was released in August of 2014. This optimistic, Beatlesque folk album was the second album that they released with the record label Excelsior Recordings. That autumn, Tangarine performed their show In Stereo at dozens of packed theaters, where they would speak and sing about their existence as identical and sometimes bickering twins.

Tangarine enjoyed their nationwide breakthrough in 2013, thanks to their highly acclaimed, introspective album Seek and Sigh. This was their first record released by the record label Excelsior, after having recorded four albums on their own. In the slipstream of this album, they became the house band of the Dutch television program De Wereld Draait Door, and they also did a sold-out club tour plus many performances at major festivals.
