"Litanic Mask's Vampire finds the Portland band delivering on the promise of their gritty debut, combining a spectrum of influences into brilliant white light. The record begins with an arpeggiated electronic pulse and plunging 808, evidencing an appreciation for ATL/CHI street rap production within icy, mannered synthpop. Vocalist Kenna Jean draws on the iconic vampire myth as a clever conceit for the impossibility of real human connection, romantic or otherwise. Jean's shapeshifting lyrics inhabit the tidal shoegaze of 'Anarchy,' the cubist pop of the title track and the epic scale of the industrial '24.' Synthetic choirs and shifting sub frequencies emerge repeatedly, serving as a worthy foil for Jean and demonstrating the band's unwillingness to adopt lowest common denominator indicators of darkness."
