Scottish post-rock band The Twilight Sad are following up their excellent No One Can Ever Know with a remix album. Remixes include work from Liars, Breton, Com Truise, Tom Furse (The Horrors) and more, not to mention a preference to rework the song "Sick." Today we get to check out that very song, "Sick," as remixed by Com Truise.
The original No One Will Ever Know was produced with Andrew Weatherall, who turned the band onto the analog vibe of vintage synthesizers, with influences like Cabaret Voltaire, Can, Liars, Magazine, Autechre, and Public Image Limited, Factory Records and Cluster‘s Conny Plank. The result was a darker sound, an extension of past Twilight Sad lyrics and music with new influences and a keyboard/programming-driven method of making sounds. “We wanted to be a lot more spontaneous, get outside our comfort zone - not to fall back into repeating what we've done previously," said Andy Macfarlane.
