Twilight Driving

FRESH: ‘Pretty In Pink’ – Twilight Driving

Twilight Driving admire “Pretty In Pink”

Brighton based band Twilight Driving release their electrifying new single “Pretty In Pink” today, which was written and recorded at their own homes during lockdown and on various Zoom Sessions, with production assistance from Chris Hutchison AKA Aidan Black. The band are all drawn to big songs from big artists, which inevitably start to wear off when they themselves get writing. Twilight Driving say they don’t consciously write big choruses, but they just fit their vocal style and they really them stick.

Twilight Driving are George Gleeson – Lead Vox/Guitar, Will Mavin – Lead Vox/Keys/Guitar, Aidan Chadwick – Backing Vox/Bass and Danny Lawrence-Backing Vox/Drums and all met in Brighton through playing in various different bands and university. They called themselves Twilight Driving, which they feel captures the band’s unique and tranquil feeling of driving at night, and this is something they have tried to emulate through the writing processes. As the band tell us straight “We love creating great road trip songs!”. “Pretty In Pink” is just that, a superb electro-band sound coming out of it’s heart that inspires and draws you near.

Twilight Driving are inspired by “Born In The USA” by Springsteen as well as Gary Numan and Depeche Mode and more modern bands like The War On Drugs. The band tell us “We suppose this subconsciously pushed us towards the sound weare creating for ourselves. We must admit though we have a lot of 80’s guilty pleasures on our playlists”. TD made their debut in 2017 with “Soft And Pink” (there’s a ‘pink’ theme running here me thinks!), while 2020 has been a very productive year with four tracks already released, “Break Your Heart”, “Resuscitate”, “Link Up” and “Perfect Symmetry”. The band have seen support nationally from the likes of BBC Radio 1, BBC Introducing, Spotify editorial playlist ‘Alternative Generation’, as well notable local press BN1 Magazine and Hidden Herd.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
