The Twilight Sad will release their album No One Will Ever Know on Feb. 7, via FatCat Records. No One Will Ever Know was produced With Andrew Weatherall, who turned the band onto the analog mindset of vintage synthesisers, with influences like Factory Records’ Martin Hannett and Cluster‘s Conny Plank. The result was a darker and richer sound, an extension of past Twilight Sad lyrics and music with new influences and a keyboard/programming-driven method of making sounds. Other influences playing out here: Cabaret Voltaire, Can, Liars, Magazine, Autechre, and Public Image Limited were all part of the daily listening diet of Twilight Sad consumption. The press release even sights Depeche Mode, The Cure, or even Nine Inch Nails comparisons. Check out the band this year at the 2012 SXSW Music Conference.
“We wanted to be a lot more spontaneous, get outside our comfort zone - not to fall back into repeating what we've done previously. 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,” said guitarist Andy MacFarlane on the new approach.
