The Twilight Sad are a Scottish indie rock band, comprising James Graham (vocals), Andy MacFarlane (guitar), and MarkDevine (drums). The band are currently signed to Fat Cat Records and have released four full-length albums, as well asseveral EPs and singles. Their 2007 debut album, Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters, drew widespread acclaim from critics,who noted Graham's thick Scottish accent and MacFarlane's dense sonic walls of shoegazing guitar and wheezing accordion.The Twilight Sad's notoriously loud live performances have been described as "completely ear-splitting," and the band touredfor the album across Europe and the United States throughout 2007 and 2008. Sessions inspired by stripped-down andreworked live performances yielded the 2008 mini-album, Here, It Never Snowed. Afterwards It Did.

Their second album, Forget the Night Ahead, marked a shift in the band's direction; lyrically more personal and musicallydarker and more streamlined, it was released in 2009 to further acclaim. Recording sessions for the album also produced themid-2010 release The Wrong Car, which followed the departure of founding bassist Craig Orzel in February 2010. The TwilightSad's third album, No One Can Ever Know, was released in February 2012 and marked another stylistic shift, with the bandciting industrial music and krautrock influences for a darker, sparser sound. The band's fourth album, entitled Nobody Wantsto Be Here and Nobody Wants to Leave, was released in late October 2014.

The band describes their sound as "folk with layers of noise," and music critics have described the band as "perenniallyunhappy" and "a band that inject some real emotion and dynamic excitement into a comparatively standard template." « hide
