Biffy Clyro – Black Chandelier (2012)

334Biffy Clyro are back!

Following the album track release of ‘Stingin’ Belle’ earlier in the year the first single proper got played on BBC Radio 1 last night.

Starting with a ‘drip-drip, drip-drip’ vocal the song is instantly recognisable as Biffy Clyro. Once Simon Neil’s vocal starts you are back in a familiar territory as if they’ve never been away. Understated this track slowly builds to a chorus which I guarantee you’ll be singing along to after only a few listens.

Around about the three-minute mark we are treated to a lovely little “rock out” interlude before the melody of the track returns for the big finish.

Based on this track, with a sold out UK tour already scheduled for May next year, and the album Opposites coming out in January it is very likely that 2013 is going to be the biggest year yet for this Scottish band. Today they’ve posted ‘Black Chandelier’ to their official YouTube channel.
