Floral Green

Floral Green, the new album from the Kingston, PA, quartet TITLE FIGHT is set for a spring release on September 21 through SideOneDummy/Shock. Floral Green sees the band explore a blitzkrieg fusion of hardcore punk, SonicYouth-style noise freak-outs, late 80's alternative and post hardcore. With guidance from producer Will Yip, Floral Green sounds positively brilliant and edgy - unlike anything else being released from the modern day hardcore scene. Ned Russin's bass barrels forward over twin brother Ben Russin's 4, on the floor, mack truck style drums, with guitarists Jamie Rhoden and Shane Moran's intricate riffs twisting, pummeling riffs and careening around each other to create an atmospheric symphony around the rhythm section's powerful drive. Floral Green establishes the band as one of the most unique and brilliant bands around. In the middle of June 2011, hundreds of people converged on Redwood Art Space, a cramped storefront unit in an aging, out-of-the-way strip mall on the outskirts of Wilkes-Barre in the heart of northeastern Pennsylvania’s Wyoming Valley. The crowd ranged in age from fresh-faced, guileless early teens to preening, collegiate twenties to paunchy, resigned forties, and in affect from angular-coiffed mall-punk to Polo- and Nike-bedecked straight-edge hardcore to menacing on-probation street tough. They had come to celebrate the release of Shed, Title Fight’s debut album. As with everything Title Fight does, has done, and will continue to do, Floral Green is an exercise in earnestness, of playing music and singing words that express, with absolute pinpoint precision, what is felt, and doing so in unguarded, unmediated, and unironic terms. The album’s lyrics provide a blow-by-bow account of human feeling in all its complexity and, it has to be said, in all its ugliness. They reveal the frightening-to-plumb depths of resentment, self-doubt, cowardice, and duplicity that we all know are somewhere inside us. 'I really strive to be honest in my writing, but that is something I always struggle with,' Russin says. 'I think this is by far the most straightforward stuff I’ve written. I’m really proud of that, but at times I’m worried about people knowing how I feel.' Also, and not incidentally, the album contains talk of loving homeland and family, of gratitude for life’s opportunities and its occasional swells of transcendent happiness. Ultimately, Floral Green is a leading-by-example repudiation of cynicism and narcissism. It amounts to a persuasive argument in favor of presenting yourself exactly as you are. Exactly as you’ve always been.
