The Twilight Sad have just finished embarking on a record shop acoustic tour which tied in with the release of their latest single, released as a 7" picture disc featuring I Could Give You All That You Don't Want and new track The Airport.
The former is, of course, the third track on their recent BAMS winning album Nobody Wants To Be Here And Nobody Wants To Leave. The song is one of the standout tracks on what is a superb album; a driving, melodic number that turns from a track reminiscent of Joy Divison to one that explodes with power quite spectacularly. The Airport is a more relaxed number that shares the lead track's key production motifs of reverb filled vocals and intense guitar sounds and is a good enough track to have fitted on Nobody Wants To Be Here… quite comfortably.
As you would expect from The Twilight Sad, this is a great release and, if you've somehow missed the album, this is as good an entry point as any.
