The crowd at the Senior Center has some suprisingly hip moves as they get up to get down for the new Twilight Sad song "Dead City" in their new video. 80 is the new 40! The Twilight Sad released their album No One Will Ever Know earlier this year, and it 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. “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.
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.
