Brighton-based indie-pop band Twilight Driving have revealed new single When Love Goes Wrong. The track, due for release February 14, is as honest as it is anthemic, the track immediately draws you in with its pounding drums, melodic piano and screaming guitars that disclose the four-piece’s War on Drugs, Springsteen and Bowie influences.
It’s almost as if there are emotional supplements it reveals in its palm before it keeps you at arm’s length with the rational realism that the lyrics invite. ‘We’re losing ourselves my dear’ and ‘Am I making you happy anymore?’ supply an honest dose that make even the most in-love listener question their relationship in the mirror. “We’ve all come to a point in a relationship where feelings
start to change,” said Will Mavin. “When Love Goes Wrong” explores the narrative within a person’s mind when they begin to realise these changing feelings, and the implications of them. Whether it’s working through the feelings together or giving up, it’s a universal issue I think everyone goes through. At the time of writing this song I felt a general sense of discontent, which I think played into the feelings I was having in my relationship.”
The song was written in a few minutes, and was inspired by a lyric in a song that George had written that summed up everything I was feeling.
When Love Goes Wrong will be released on Weds 14 Feb 2018, through all major platforms.
