Twin Atlantic - Barrowland, Glasgow, Sat 27 Oct 2012

Having spent their formative years living in the inevitable shadow of Scottish heavyweights Biffy Clyro, it now appears that Twin Atlantic's recent efforts have come to a well-earned period of pay-off. Following their latest album Free, which showcased a refined and distinctive sound, honed through their enthusiasm and relentless hard work, the guys seem to be enjoying the fruits of their labour tonight. Providing an onslaught of tracks from Free the guys are on top form and clearly relishing every moment. From the intense riff barrage on 'The Ghost of Eddie' to the anthemic 'Yes, I was Drunk', the band tick all the boxes in terms of expectation from a sold-out Barrowlands gig. Set closer 'Make a beast of myself' whips the crowd into frenzy and provides a climatic end to their two-night spot at the legendary Glasgow venue. Based on tonight’s performance, and on the strength of the plaudits heaped on their breakthrough album, it would now only seem fair to distance the band from any comparisons which now pale in significance, and welcome a band who will hopefully keep on delivering.
