Glasgow's indie-punk-rock upstarts continue their ascent with accomplished second album

(Red Bull)

With Biffy Clyro now zapped up into mainstream consciousness in a sort of twisted alien abduction, there’s a vacuous hole now open for Scotland’s next alt-rock band to stake their claim in. Twin Atlantic however have been ploughing their furrow for years – non-reliant on benign Biffy comparisons – and their second album Free is defiantly potent, with the title track a rock club classic-in-waiting and ‘The Ghost of Eddie’ explosive with grunge aplomb. It’s in these gruff moments this band truly shines, but there’s so much fist-clenching hook elsewhere that it is hard not to predict international adulation on the horizon.

Whilst every effort has been made to ensure the information displayed here is accurate, always check with the venue before attending (especially during the Covid-19 pandemic).
