The band was formed in Copenhagen in 2006 and is named after the American writer Tom Wolfes article , The Kandy Kolored Tangerine-Flake Streamline Baby from 1965. The return of the predominantly English shoegaze genre in New York has resulted in several new exciting reinterpretations of the sound. Kandy Kolored Tangerine breaks the atmospheric genre up with more pronounced desperation, that draws lines from Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Queens Of The Stone Age's desert rock, My Bloody Valentine and has elements of American psych. Kandy Kolored Tangerines live show is a meeting between euphoric, energetic noisebursts, and deep, evocative compositions. The music is always presented with a dedicated energy and willingness to move and seduce the audience into their world. Most shows are visually backed up by Torben Olanders dreamy, psychedelic live video collages.
