The Notwist are a German indie rock band.
Formed in 1989, the band moved through several musical incarnations despite maintaining a relatively stable lineup. While their early records moved through heavy metal into dark indie rock, their recent efforts for which they've received the most attention have been very strongly influenced by the electronica scene, along with the other groups on the record label Morr Music.

The Acher brothers and Messerschmid formed the group in 1989 in Weilheim in Oberbayern, near Munich.
In 1990 they recorded their self-titled debut, a grunge-metal oriented LP.
1992 saw the release of Nook, which has an indie rock sound, while their 1995 album 12 contains their first flirtation with electronics.
Martin Gretschmann then joined the group in 1997. Shrink, released in 1998, is a jazz-electro-rock album.
In 1998 Cynthia Dall did the vocals for a remix of "Torture Day" by The Notwist.

The album Neon Golden (released in 2002) put them on the map for American listeners, with its heartfelt sentiment and more pop-oriented sound.

Messerschmidt left the group in 2007 and was replaced by Andi Haberl.

The band's sixth full-length record, The Devil, You + Me, was released in Europe in May, 2008.

In 2009 they recorded Sturm, a soundtrack to the film of the same name from Hans-Christian Schmid.
