The title of Titanmoon’s new album We All See Stars could easily refer to the songs: glittery, buoyant, and flowing with a seductive sonic generosity. Sounds incorporated into the tunes include ones captured at a revival at an African-American church in East Texas and stray bits of music recorded on the streets of Pakistan and Japan. The global reach of these samples offers the real key to the album’s title.
“We tossed around 20 or 30 different names,” said Tyler Casey, Titanmoon’s vocalist, keyboardist, and main songwriter. Lead guitarist Rene Floyd came up with We All See Stars. That image of a sky shared by everyone not only reflects the philosophy of universal human experience that fuels the band’s music but also the world travels undertaken by the band last fall.
