The Transit War, who hail from the sunny city of San Diego, CA, have the desire to make your ears melt with their indie rock tunes. On their new release iAh Discordia! (which is actually a re-release) the band deliver 8 tracks with indie guitars and emotional / inspiring lyrics. From the opening track “We’re Sleeping Better Now” you know that this album is going to be an exciting one. “Beakers & Bunsen Burners” shows the bands creative writing skills with mixing guitars and writing lyrics that move. “Mayday” presents some great guitar work and a faster chorus. You have to love the bands ability to keep you interested on this short album. The title track “Discordia” is, well, different from everything else on the album. It’s short but it’s acapella style is refreshing for the album. If you are going to enjoy any track on this album make sure it’s “Kerosene” which showcases the bands talents on this perfect song. “Hey, Get A Load Of That Stained Glass Window” wraps up the album and it’s a great song that showcases both some great vocal and guitar work.
For indie fans this is another great album. I can’t describe their sound to the fullest so your best bet is to take a listen for yourself and enjoy the music.
