The Twilight Sad ‘No One Can Ever Know’ 2xLP
Pre-order. Due 18th February.
The Twilight Sad’s third full-length, ‘No One Can Ever Know’, marks a sonic shift for the band. Freshly inspired by a listening diet of Cabaret Voltaire, Can, Liars, Magazine, Autechre and Public Image Limited, the band turn to a dark, synth-heavy sound; the resulting LP shares thematic and sonic space with the most innovative offerings from Depeche Mode, The Cure or even Nine Inch Nails.
“We wanted to be a lot more spontaneous, get outside our comfort zone - not to fall back into repeating what we’ve done previously,” explains guitarist Andy MacFarlane. “So we moved to London for a month to record at The Pool and got Andrew Weatherall involved to bounce ideas off and to generally reassure us of the direction we were already progressing in - toward a sparser sound, with a colder, slightly militant feel.”
