Nobody Wants to Be Here & Nobody Wants to Leave

Nobody Wants to Be Here & Nobody Wants to Leave

Glasgow, Scotland’s Twilight Sad created their most musically ambitious album to date with 2014’s Nothing Wants to Be Here and Nobody Wants to Leave, combining elements of their previous albums and modifying them into a coherent postpunk/shoegaze statement. Singer James Graham remains the somber type, bringing songs like “There’s a Girl in the Corner,” “It Was Never the Same,” and “Pills I Swallow” a seductive moodiness that evokes The Smiths while musically expanding into a far tougher epic sound. Even the vindictive “Drown So I Can Watch” does so with pulsing immediacy and catchiness. This was recorded at Mogwai’s Castle of Doom.
