The Twilight Sad new single – ‘Sick’


The Twilight Sad follow the free download of ‘Kill It In The Morning’* with the release of a new single proper, ‘Sick’ on 14th November. You can hear the track here:

Both songs are taken from the forthcoming album, ‘No One Can Ever Know’ (due February 2012) marking a sonic shift for The Twilight Sad. Freshly inspired by the likes of Magazine, Caberet Voltaire, Fad Gadget, PiL and Can, a sound has developed that is reminiscent of Depeche Mode, Nine Inch Nails or The Cure in their imperial phases.

Over a splashing, rolling electronic drum pattern bright, icy synths cut to create a disconcertingly affecting backdrop to James Graham’s desolate lyric and broad brogue.

Overseen by Andy Weatherall in the loose role of advisor cum ‘anti-producer’, the melodic tone of the new album is largely dominated by a new keyboard/programming-driven approach.
