Twin Atlantic - Free

(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.
