The Titans Of The Industry – LMNOEP Album Review

The Titans Of Industry is a Seattle-based indie rock band with some oddball elements and vocals, which create a vibe reminiscent of bands like Of Montreal.

Their new LMNOEP EP begins with “These Cold Hands,” a catchy track with a curious mixture of pounding keys, strings, and crunchy guitar riffs; “Touch And Go, Snowy Snow” is a quirky cinematic track with another catchy melody. “Millionaire Station” begins with a long ominous orchestral piece — maybe meant for a Star Wars movie — and turns into a dark waltz before encompassing a shockingly sweet-sounding, but extremely bitter lyric: “Fuck you baby/ I’m tired of this shit/ Sweet baby.” The track continues with a puttering machine, fading into the final song seamlessly. “Little Brain” is more of a traditional rock song featuring loud, dirty metallic guitar riffs, but strings warm it up at just the right points.

The Titans of Industry combine atypical musical elements and distinctive touches to grab the listener in a more unique way than a traditional rock band, and they leave a more long-lasting impression.
