Inspired by the melodies of Detroit house and the tempos of UK Soundsystem, 'Tangerine' is an extension of Celeste's personal history. While EPs made her feel restricted, she notes that making the LP has been a new experience for her explaining, ”writing an album made me feel free of all this because it seemed like an open-ended project. I could just keep creating until I felt like stopping."

Her manipulated voice and use of a kalimba, a Zimbabwean musical instrument, are key to the base sounds on 'Tangerine.' Previously a record assistant at Idle Hands in Bristol in her early days, Celeste has paved a way for herself as a one-of-a-kind underground DJ.
