The Twilight Sad – Drown So I Can Watch (Live)

Drown So I Can Watch performed live in philly by The Twilight Sad – a Scottish post-punk/indie rock band, fronted by James Graham. The foundation for the group started in Kilsyth and the neighbouring village of Banton, when vocalist James Graham met guitarist Andy MacFarlane in high school and went on to form a cover band with some friends, which included drummer Mark Devine. After leaving school, they decided to take it more seriously. In late 2003, MacFarlane met bassist Craig Orzel in a bus stop and invited him to join the newly formed band. They took their name from a line in the poem But I Was Looking at the Permanent Stars by British poet Wilfred Owen, which reads “Sleep mothered them; and left the twilight sad.”
