Floral Green is Title Fight’s second full-length release. Recorded with Will Yip at Studio 4 Recording in Conshohocken, PA during May and June of 2012.
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 un-ironic terms. The album’s lyrics provide a blow-by-blow 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.
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.
