The Twilight Sad release Killed My Parents And Hit The Road on vinyl for the first time. With the majority of tracks mixed and mastered by Iain Cook of Aerogramme, Killed My Parents And Hit The Road encompasses the bands’ bare, unfeigned use of melancholy with rousing, epic intensity, never straying too far from hitting sentimental nerves. Throughout the record, melodies stagger between feedback-laden instrumentals and rich, seemingly effortless acoustic ballads, each accented by Graham’s strong Scottish tones, creating a collection of songs that are as in- triguing as they are engulfing. Alongside their own tracks, the band have chosen to cover songs by Joy Division (Twenty Four Hours), Yeah Yeah Yeahs (Modern Romance) and The Smiths (Half A Person), providing greater scope into the tracks’ pensive and wistful subjects, whilst retaining the stirring and engaging qualities of the originals.
