Scottish trio The Twilight Sad dropped their latest album Nobody Wants To Be Here And Nobody Wants To Leave and gave the album track Last January the visual treatment last fall. They kicked off the new year with the track “The Airport”  as the B-side teaser to a single that didn’t make the album. Today, they release a video for A-side “I Could Give You All That You Don’t Want,” a grand mid-tempo rock ballad that fits right into the album’s moody soundscape. The video is a barebones black-and white-performance clip set in a dark room that matches the song’s feel.

Here is the track The Airport B-side to ‘I Could Give You All That You Don’t Want’

The group’s fourth LP, “Nobody Wants To Be Here And Nobody Wants To Leave”, more than justifies this ascension. Where there were youthful, wayward meanderings, So after exorcising the sorrows of lessons learnt along the way. The new sound with the synths more comfortable in their supporting role, plus new orchestral sounds emerge, The guitars return to the forefront and Graham’s rich vocal is more assured, with a newly matured verve for heart-melting melodies that elevates this record to a place where the band had only earlier dabbled. This record soars with an evolved clarity and punchy guitar hooks, addictive refrains and vocal melodies to weep over.



The Twilight Sad’s new LP, Nobody Wants To Be Here And Nobody Wants To Leave, was released last month, with a small tour to support the album, the Scottish group gives us a video for “Last January.” The clip features two tattooed men as they drive around a nondescript city and walk through a field, smoking and looking depressed. The melancholy song is complemented by the moody expressions of the actors and director Nicola Collins’ choice to film in crisp black and white. Watch.
