The Twilight Sad Share New Song “I/m Not Here [missing face]”

Off the back of the news of their recent signing to Rock Action Records, Glasgow’s The Twilight Sad announce plans for extensive UK, European and North American tours this autumn as well as sharing a brand new song, “I/m Not Here [missing face]“.

It’s a driving, motorik return from the much-loved Scots, with wailing guitars and swirling synths circling around frontman James Graham‘s repeated declarations of “I don’t want to be around you anymore.” Graham describes the track’s lyrical basis as being “about my ongoing battle with not liking myself, trying to be a good person but constantly feeling like I’m failing myself and everyone I care about.”

Exploring its inception, the band’s Andy MacFarlane jovially adds, “I was attempting to play ‘Ogives’ by Erik Satie, but I’m really shit at the piano so it didn’t happen, but I came up with the music using those chord shapes. So from my perspective, it’s a bad cover version of that piece of music.”
