In Titus Andronicus’ Number One (In New York), the profound ‘whining’ and ‘sulking’ peppers the lyrical upper troposphere – damaging external skins, darkening them in rough, upfront whippings.
Don’t be ‘bullshit’.
Don’t be like that.
Don’t live like that.
You don’t deserve to.
Maybe you do.
Only you can know.
I’ll tell you…
No…find out yourself.
Part of his expected new 7 song EP (due to drop in March 2nd, 2018), the single, to us, is a ‘Pink Floyd’-like description exercise, grinding out the life of a moment, of a certain minute. It’s dark, but bright – then takes one right back to that dark corner of a trivial existence.
It’s a ‘Statement of Intent’ by Titus.
We recommend you hold on tight. The EP should be a fabulous rollercoaster of a ride.
Following up his LP ‘S+@dium Rock : Five Nights at the Opera’, we fully expect to find ‘evolution’ in his work, and ‘additional support’ for his punk ways.
Enjoy the video.
He’s rep’ed by Merge Records.
