Why the Name Half an Orange?
The duo’s odd name comes from a Brazilian expression one of the members learned while living on a beach in Rio de Janeiro for a year. The expression, ‘metade da laranja’ (translated to ‘half an orange’), means that everyone is half an orange looking for that one person, thing, or purpose that completes them. It is the other half of their orange. If you’re still only half an orange then you’re lonely and lost in the world. The duo liked the name because they always felt a little lost or out of place in the world.
