The Twilight Sad
These veterans of noisy rock turned pastoral indie discover a niche for dramatic post-punk here, evoking the likes of new order and interpol to brilliant effect.
A constant throughout their subtle shapeshifting is those amazingly evocative vocals that carry the band’s stories through their deep Scottish tone alone. Pitted against the backdrop of a post-punk bassline, atmospheric synths and gritty guitars, the sense is that this evolution of their sound was meant to be. A song that will creep up on you and pique excitement for their accompanying lp.
