That's My Jam #37 - The Twilight Sad - There's A Girl In The Corner
After celebrating their 10th anniversay, and re-releasing debut album Fourteen Autumns And Fifteen Winters, The Twilight Sad return to focus on album number four. Due for release on 27th October, Nobody Wants To Be Here and Nobody Wants To Leave will represent all faceats of The Sad's music over the past 10 years.
There's A Girl In The Corner is the first peek at the album showcasing a eerie gothic feel. Beginning very sparse with a slow tempo and pronounced instrumentalisation, the low rumbling bass and drums strain at the leash throughout yearning to burst into full on noise mode. Lyrically James Graham allegorises as always, noting the titular girl in the corner, her supposed mis-deeds and her demise with his usual passive-aggressive tones, all the while remaining tight lipped about what has caused such woe and despair.
