TwilightSad 225x300 - Sad rules The Bams
“Really good. I think I found out last week, and I told my Dad right away. He was like, ‘well done son!’ James Graham on winning the award.

Nobody Wants To Be Here & Nobody Wants To Leaveir?t=wwwinvernessg 21&l=as2&o=2&a=B00N2ZOBWS - Sad rules The Bams’, The Twilight Sad’s fourth album has topped the  annual poll of Scottish Blogs and Music Sites (BAMS).

It’s been a while since we reviewed the band (actually 2011) who join other winners including Mersault, CHVRCHES and winners of the first BAM, The Phantom Band.

The Twilight Sad frontman, James Graham said of the support from bloggers nationwide;

“I think it’s been, and I’m not just saying this, it’s probably been one of the most important things for our band.  When we started out, it was blogs and things like that that helped spread the word about our music.

And through every release we’ve had we’ve constantly had that support.  We’re not a band that is on the front of magazines or in big features, and in some ways I like that.  I mean if that comes along, then that comes along and that’s great.”

The full top ten;

  1. The Twilight Sad – Nobody Wants To Be Here And Nobody Wants To Leave
  2. Mogwai – Rave Tapes
  3. The Phantom Band – Strange Friend
  4. Withered Hand – New Gods
  5. Honeyblood – Honeyblood
  6. Young Fathers – DEAD
  7. Jonnie Common – Trapped in Amber
