The Twilight Sad

‘In a just world, The Twilight Sad would be huge’, according to The Cure’s Robert Smith. Along with Mogwai and Aerogramme, the foursome from Glasgow brings that typical Scottish touch to the mix. They play deafeningly loud music, they sculpt with noise and they always err towards the dark side. The Twilight Sad made their debut in 2007 with ‘Fourteen autumns & fifteen winters’, a shoegaze classic that was voted record of the year here and there. In a first movement, the wall of sound gradually swells. ‘Nobody want to be here and nobody wants to leave’ (2014) feels more refined. The Twilight Sad briefly hesitated whether to continue but got a second wind. The band toured with The Cure and ended up signing with Rock Action, Mogwai's record label. Their new album, ‘It won/t be like this all the time’ (2019), is full of grandeur and is already considered a strong artistic statement.
