North Carolina-based duo Mandolin Orange hit it out of the park again on Such Jubilee, the satisfying follow up to 2013’s This Side Of Jordan. The songs show Andrew Marlin and Emily Frantz at their very best, with just the right amount of the pair’s signature warm harmonies.
“Usually for us, making a record is as much of a mystery as it is a creation,” say the duo. “We’ve never been able to successfully record demos because we’re very all-or-nothing in the studio. Such Jubilee came together super naturally — we had been touring as a duo all year when we started recording, so we fell right into that approach. There is a lot of variety in the lyrical content of these songs, but the way they came together in the studio eventually connected all the dots.”
