The Twilight Sad – The Wrong Car EP

Single Review by Ryan Drever | 07 Jul 2010
  • The Twilight Sad - The Wrong Car EP
Single title: The Wrong Car EP
Artist: The Twilight Sad
Label: Fat Cat
Release date: 26 Jul

Comprising of two unreleased tracks and two remixes, The Wrong Car EP is what you might call a "stop-gap" release between albums, but really it's much more than that. The eponymous opener throws in the pounding drums and impassioned wails we've come to expect from the 'Sad, though they're complemented with dense, colourful string arangements and considerably more refined periods of noise.

Throw Yourself In The Water Again shows its guitar-driven strength right from the start – easily one of the more direct numbers the band have produced to date. The remixes are equally engaging, with Mogwai transforming The Room into subtle, melancholic electro-pop and Rock Action disciples Errors twisting Reflection Of The Television into a dark contender for the dance floor. [Ryan Drever]
