That Noise has been cultivating its radio-ready roar since 2007, with its principals, vocals Jawnee Burkes and guitarist Jay Skinner working around other projects while trying to tap into fans of bands like Nine Inch Nails and Muse. Their tense, densely layered alt-rock is neither as glossy nor dancefloor-ready as many bands who use synths and guitars as the brick and mortar in their wall of sound. But That Noise’s new EP “Love Remains” â€” produced by Max Dingle (who has worked on records my the likes of White Lies, Glasvegas, Neon Neon and Goldfrapp) â€” does have a dose of window-rattling soundscapes, and in a world where alt-rock still ruled, Burkes, Skinner and drummer Kenny Ramirez would be known for more than just their cover of Kings of Leon’s “Sex on Fire.”
