UK rock has found a brave new voice and it is distinctly Scottish. Twin Atlantic hail from Glasgow, Scotland and formed in early 2007. The band opened for Aereogramme on their farewell Glasgow show at the QMU. They have also been the main support for bands such as Circa Survive, Biffy Clyro, Finch, Thrice, Funeral for a Friend, and The Smashing Pumpkins. In the summer of 2008 the band played numerous festivals including – Rock Ness, Live At Loch Lomond, Connect, T In The Park and Belladrum. Their debut EP, ‘A Guidance From Colour’, was recorded with Romesh Dodangoda (Funeral for a Friend, Glassjaw, Kids In Glass Houses) at Long Wave Studios in Cardiff and it was released January 14th, 2008. ‘What Is Light, Where Is Laughter?’ was released on September 29th 2008 by King Tuts Recordings and was the band’s first release on physical format.
Through a combination of ridiculously melodic and poetic song-writing, Twin Atlantic showcase an ambition, determination and maturity far greater than their young years should allow. With riffs and choruses that will stick in your head for ages, they can play hard and fast and loud like the best of them, then instantly flip the switch and have a packed venue waving lighters to their softer side. And they’re not just another growly band with a few good beards and a poster boy singer.
