The Notwist are a German indie rock band formed in 1989 and consists of Markus Acher, Michael Acher, Andi Haberl and Martin Gretschmann.

The band was formed in 1989 by The Acher brothers who lived near Munich. In the early days Notwist experimented with sounds ranging from death metal to dark indie rock, their music now incorporates electronic influences, adding yet another dimension to the overall sound. Despite being a band for over twenty years, the line up has changed very little throughout and this is credited for Notwist’s ability to consistently deliver albums whilst also showcasing a developmental quality as they move through their career as a unit.

Their first album came in 1991 and was a self-titled release. It didn’t gain any commercial successes in terms of chart placement, but it was hailed critically after earning praise from the likes of AllMusic and Pitchfork who commented on the innovative qualities the band showcase by bringing together genres such as punk and electro and making them work. They have consistently released material since this LP, their discography currently stands at seven original albums, one live album, and one soundtrack.

‘Close to the Glass’ was released in 2014 and once again won rave reviews from a number of esteemed publications. It currently holds a Metacritic score of 79/100 after receiving positive reviews from MusicOMH and AllMusic, the latter stating that: “the way they join the organic and the electronic, the cerebral and the emotional on Close to the Glass makes it the most thoroughly rewarding and enjoyable album of the Notwist’s career to date
