Born amongst the same indie rock/post-punk revival scene that launched the Arctic Monkeys into stardom, Glasgow’s The Twilight Sad peddle an altogether different tone which fuses Scottish miserabilism with a heady indie punk sound.

The band’s first album, 2007’s Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters, aimed to tear down the restrictions which resulted from the post-Britpop music scene, with anthemic tracks like Walking For Two Hours and the expressive vocals found on the title track. It’s an album that’s stood the test of time, even more so when you consider how the 2020’s rock sound has been transforming and developing.

Their most recent release, 2019’s It Won’t Be Like This All The Time, brings those modern sounds to the fore and showcases in awe-inspiring and goosebump-inducing splendour a noisy, shoegaze-inspired soundscape which demonstrates why this band were always ahead of the curve.

The band’s live show is just as thrilling as their recorded output, and their forthcoming show at Stockton’s Georgian Theatre on Thursday 25th August is one of their rescheduled shows before they spend the rest of the year on tour with The Cure.

The Twilight Sad play The Georgian Theatre, Stockton on Thursday 25th August.
