Last Friday I went to see TITANMOON live performance at Tokyo American Club.
One of 8tokyo.com reader, Elizabeth(from US) invited me there. She is TITANMOON’s manager.

They are indie rock band from Dallas/ Fort Worth, Texas. Now touring around the world, Pakistan, Dubai and Japan.

It’s amazing music, indie rock but mainstream sound.

From media (via titanmoon.net)

on THE BAND
“As friendly with U2-ish rock as with Strokes-ian punchiness, titanmoon might be the missing link between hipster and international man of leisure.”

“The ’80s mod-rock mined by titanmoon comes straight from the Book of U2, all perfectly orchestrated atmospherics, the crash of tinny guitars, and cosmic vibes.”

“Ethereal, imagistic pop rock.”

“An orchestral mélange of hooks, hard beats, and digital keyboard colors clearly informed by the likes of The Killers and Bloc Party.”

“Simply, if there is one band that’s more ready for making the big jump, we can’t think of one.”

“This very publication couldn’t go a week without bragging on the musical prowess of a new outfit: . . . titanmoon is on its way to becoming the proverbial stick by which all other quiet, moody alt-rock bands will be measured.”

- Fort Worth Weekly

“Titanmoon crafts smart, shimmering, hook-heavy indie-rock.”
- Fort Worth Star-Telegram

“Titanmoon performs ambitious music made majestic by a layering of sounds…This band is full of talent!”

- Music Connection Magazine

on FILM BLACK
“Concept albums are always tricky to pull off, but Titanmoon more than accomplishes its goal. These dense indie-rock compositions have an epic sweep and clear-eyed emotional heft.”

- Fort Worth Star-Telegram

“… the band’s new, elegant direction. A sense of epic, hyper-synthesized grandeur still infuses Titanmoon’s mod-rock.”

- Fort Worth Weekly

on POSTCARD REPUBLIC
“Titanmoon’s Postcard E.P. is a moody, intelligent and very promising collection of acoustic-based dream pop.”

- The Rage, Nashville

This cake is inspired from that candy!
