Biffy Clyro have a very silly name. Silly enough to make me ignore them for probably 6 or 7 years, despite knowing that the critics were starting to say good things about them. I just dismissed them.
But a couple of months ago, I was swapping music recommendations with my 15 year old nephew Callum (a very cool and fun thing to do). He said I should give them a try – the album Puzzle. I stuck it on Spotify and eventually got round to listening to it when I got back to NZ.
You can guess the rest probably. Their latest 3 albums ended up on constant repeat for about a week or so. What are they like? A Scottish Foo Fighters is what first came to mind, but with better songs (and I kind of like Dave Grohl and co). Some great riffs and always a top tune thrown in that you’ll be humming after one or two listens. My kind of rock music!
This is their most recent album and it’s a double. I could easily have picked Puzzle or Only Revolutions as they’re all pretty much on par with each other. But this is a good place to start. Let me know what you think.
And Dave – if you’re out there somewhere – I think you’d like this one!
Best track – Stingin’ Belle
