Title Fight is a band from Kingston, Pa, comprised of bassist/vocalist Ned Russin, guitarist/vocalist Jamie Rhoden, guitarist Shane Moran, and drummer Ben Russin. Hyperview is Title Fight’s third album and inaugural with Anti-.
In the summer of 2014, the band decamped to Studio 4 in Conshohocken, Pa., where with producer/engineer Will Yip they had made their last three records to make Hyperview – the follow-up release to the band’s Spring Songs EP (Revelation Records, 2013). Hyperview is a massive leap forward from previous releases and is difficult to accomplish with words. The vocals are remarkably muted and lovely when compared to the blood-curdling caterwauling of earlier work. The lyrics are almost defiantly opaque. And when it comes to the music, this is an album that renders futile the exercise of conceiving bands as sums of influences, and of dutifully itemizing those influences. Hyperview can only be heard, and loved, as an artifact unto itself.
