The Twilight Sad

It might seem a bit too neatly morose that a band called The Twilight Sad would name its 2007 debut album Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters. Powered by whirring guitars, accordion, experimental noise bursts, and James Graham’s elegant brogue, The Twilight Sad offered a frenzied take on self-pity. The band’s 2009 sophomore follow-up, Forget The Night Ahead, sees the Glaswegian quartet harnessing its frenetic folk stylings to a more peripatetic end, layering the traditional compositions with sheets of noise that yield an anthemic, wall-of-sound quality. The band’s new album, No One Can Ever Know, steers out of the noise-rock hurricane and jettisons guitars for the much less cluttered realms of bleak, ominous synth-rock.
