New album, new sound: watch Title Fight’s “Rose of Sharon” video
With the release of “Chlorine” back in December and now “Rose of Sharon,” Kingston PA rockers Title Fight have done a complete-180 with their style and sound. After signing to LA-based Anti- Records last year, the indie hardcore band announced the February 3rd release of Hyperview and began teasing it with videos.
The latest, “Rose of Sharon,” opens with light distortion and heavy pedal usage; Ned Russin’s vocals are still aggressive, but doused with reverb and are backed up by Jamie Rhoden and Shane Moran’s surf-y guitar riffs. The shift in sound really comes out in this song and foreshadows the mellow approach they may be taking on their upcoming record.
On drums, Russin’s twin brother Ben keeps the track moving with an offbeat feel and powerful drum fills. The video features the four punks decked out in all white behind a light blue light. Watch the video below, and catch the band on March 26th when they play Union Transfer with La Dispute and The Hoetlier. Tickets and information can be found at the XPN Concert Calendar.
