Twilight Driving are an uplifting force to be reckoned with after their recently released single ‘Dangerous’ blows away the competition. The Brighton based Twilight Driving excited me when I caught them live earlier this year with their incredibly honest and larger than life pop-laden sounds and tantalising vocal structures. The songs have always been massive and I’ve been waiting a while to hear them translate onto a record for a while. Having released ‘Between The Sheets’ earlier on in the year gaining an incredible reception from renowned playlists, it was only right that Dangerous made into Spotifys Indie Radar.

The four piece Indie-pop outfit strive to write heartfelt music, drawing on influences from some of the greats. Their sound is dripping in Americana; infused with 80’s synths and close harmony to form pounding pop songs is just a testimony to how easy they find it to write banger after banger with little to no effort. ‘Dangerous’ delivers on the promise of their honesty and large sound. This track has indie anthem from start to finish and it’s all too clever that they’ve released a song with such flair so early on in their career.

The band have said:

Dangerous’ is about growing up and living in a city, when everything is constantly changing around you. Friends move away, relationships change and the impact that has on your health. Its that experience of moving from your teens and into your twenties, that everyone goes through.

I know that these boys have got it in their locker to keep producing massive songs. This is definitely just the beginning for this very talented out and we’re all too excited to see them flourish and grow into one of Brightons finest modern rock exports.

Good

  • Big tune
  • Well produced that adds flavour and life
  • Anthem from start to finish

Bad

  • The chorus really pulls this song together and the rest is noise. Not a bad noise. Just noise

Summary

Twilight Driving return with another stonking hit in the form of 'Dangerous'. Their catchy pop-laden indie, larger than life indie music is a testament to a time when indie bangers made you want to run away and cry your heart out. Twilight Driving are ready to fill the void that The Killers left.
