Glasgow’s Twin Atlantic are one of the most exciting bands you’ll hear for some time. They’ve been attracting comparisons to Biffy Clyro for obvious reasons – they’re Scottish of course, and they too thrive on making intelligent, explosive rock – but that’s nowhere near the whole picture. There’s something instantly likeable about these songs that’s entirely Twin Atlantic’s own doing. Maybe it’s the perfect balance of complexity, melody and quirkiness in ‘You’re Turning Into John Wayne’, or the straightforward, sparkling optimism in ‘Lightspeed’ – but whatever it is, they’re clearly on to a winner. This debut mini-album is surely the beginning of great things.
For fans of: Idlewild, Biffy Clyro, Mogwai
