Scottish band Twin Atlantic’s third album has been touted as the one to blast them from unknown alt-rockers into the charts.
Lead single Heart and Soul cracked the top 20 earlier this year and in a world where fellow countrymen Biffy Clyro are second-headlining festivals and supporting Foo Fighters there’s no reason why Great Divide’s crunching rock cannot do similar things for Twin Atlantic.
The album’s not short of potential follow-ups to Heart and Soul – I am an animal’s rollocking boogie has single written all over it – and the band are passionate, articulate (“the youth of today have lost their voice – no-one questions we just accept what we are told” bemoans The Ones That I Love) and not short of a tune or two either.
