New Biffy Clyro song!

Recommended Posts

Tuned into Radio 1 tonight to hear the exclusive first play of the new Biffy song 'Mountains'.

It's their first release since Puzzle and I really liked it.

Here is clip of the song, really like the end of the song however it's not captured in this clip:

YouTube - Biffy Clyro- Mountains

:up:

It's incredible. Thank god you can listen to shows again on the Radio 1 website.

If anyones interested, listen to Zane Lowe's show from last night, and it starts exactly 30 minutes in.

Used to be my favourite band, but post-infinity land Biffy is terrible, in my opinion.

fair enough you don't like post-infinity land biffy very much...but 'terrible' is slightly harsh isn't it?

anyhoo - the new song is quality

I recently picked up "Vertigo of Bliss", which is the only Biffy album I own. I think it's absolutely progtastic, but their newer stuff sounds horribly generic. Still, I'll give this new song a listen.

Y'know, I have to disagree. Despite my earlier scepticism, after listening to the track on the Radio 1 website I'm actually very impressed by it. A slight Devin Townsend influence in my opinion, although I'll now get lynched for saying that.

I certainly like it a lot more than anything off their last album.

Biffy were without a doubt one of my top 5 bands before Puzzle. It's still a good album, but it's NOTHING compared to the old stuff.

I feel the exact same with this song- nice song, few really good bits, but it's not a patch on any tunes from Blackened Sky.

I love Biffy. I wasn't enthralled by this song, though. Just... hmm. :( I even liked Puzzle too. I'm going to blame this on 14th Floor, because I'm too spineless to dislike Biffy themselves. :o

I think I might agree with you here. They said themselves that it was time to earn a bit of cash after their many many years of slogging it out and Puzzle was catered towards a much larger audience. I suppose it shows something of Simon Neil's song writing skills that he can write 3 brilliant albums that created a massive cult following, then write a radio friendly pop album that still retains a bit of the old and throws in a few money earners seemingly effortlessly. This new song however might be a grower, but I'm sceptical. I love Biffy, they are my one of my favourite bands among the who and radiohead etc

I like the ones without piano though.......weezer never really did piano ever did they? have they?

Vertigo of Bliss is genius. Depsite the fact it took me 3 years of owning it to start to appreciate its greatness.

I still maintain Blackened Sky is better than Vertigo.

However much I love Vertigo, BS is just choon after choon after choon. It pretty much can't be faulted.
