7 / 10
The new album by this Scottish noise group surprisingly lacks a lot of noise. These guys dropped the distortion pedals (at least for some songs) in favor of a dark, coldwave inspired sound. Many bands who play similar music attempt to add dark synths and end up making awful music, but The Twilight Sad pull it off 100%. This is solid stuff, think New Order meets Nine Inch Nails.
Recommended tracks: “Dead City”, “Sick”, “Don’t Look at Me”
