Forget the Night Ahead
The Wrong Car

The Wrong Car is an EP by Scottish indie rock band The Twilight Sad, released on September 27, 2010.[6][7][8] The EP features two previously unreleased tracks, "The Wrong Car" and "Throw Yourself Into the Water Again," as well as two remixes of tracks from the band's second album Forget the Night Ahead: "The Room" remixed by Mogwai, and "Reflection of the Television" remixed by Errors.[9] In late May 2010, Errors' remix of "Reflection of the Television" was chosen as The Line of Best Fit's "song of the day" and was made available as a free download.[8] Previously, in January 2010, The Twilight Sad provided a remix of Errors' song "Bridge or Cloud?", which was posted as a free download on NME's website.[10][11]

"The Wrong Car" was posted on the band's official MySpace page in late July 2010.[12] NME placed the song on their list of "10 Tracks You Have to Hear This Week" on July 23, 2010.[13]


Recording and release

"The Wrong Car" and "Throw Yourself Into the Water Again" were recorded during the sessions for Forget the Night Ahead at Chem19 Studios in Hamilton, South Lanarkshire, Scotland.[7][9] "Throw Yourself Into the Water Again" was inspired by a line from Camus' La Chute (The Fall).[14] A music video was produced for "The Wrong Car," directed by Nicola Collins, who had previously directed the video for "The Room."[15] The video premiered on August 23, 2010.[16][17] Collins said of the making of the video, "When I first listened to the track, it was so honest and powerful that I couldn't help but feel reflective, so the video was born out of how I was feeling at that particular moment in time, it was like shedding a nightmare. Working with a puppet was wonderful, he didn't whine once and he had no ego!"[16]

The Wrong Car EP was released as a digital download or on 12" vinyl only.[18]

Critical reception

The Wrong Car was released to generally positive reviews. Both The Skinny and The List awarded the EP 4 out of 5 stars,[5][3] while online music blog There Goes the Fear noted that the title track "benefits from repeated listens, building a mood of yearning and desperation over the course of its 7 minutes."[19] Drowned in Sound stated that "The Twilight Sad are establishing a band tradition of providing fans with a little titbit with which to satiate themselves while they start work on new material, much as they did with the Here, It Never Snowed. Afterwards It Did EP", but summarized that while the EP is an "extremely satisfying stop-gap" release, its brevity "provides few clues as to where they're headed" musically.[2]
