NEWS: Twilight Sad announce new record company, new track and forthcoming tour

The Twilight Sad have signed to Mogwai‘s record company, Rock Action. Today they have unveiled their first new music, a single entitled ‘I/m Not Here [missing face].’

The single sees the band marry the motorik of progressive German rock to the classical French piano work of Erik Satie. The band’s Andy MacFarlane explains: “I was attempting to play ‘Ogives’ by Erik Satie, but I’m really shit at the piano so it didn’t happen, but I came up with the music using those chord shapes. So from my perspective, it’s a bad cover version of that piece of music.”
