Twin Atlantic have been making waves in the industry for a while now and seem to finally be getting recognition for what they do nationally. The band hailing from Scotland return with the single Yes I Was Drunk released on Red Bull Records on 27th August.
The single is mellow but anthemic with its lyrics, combining sedate soft vocals with angst laden emotion. What’s really good about Sam McTrusty (Vocals) is that he celebrates his Scottish roots and doesn’t try to hide his accent. The song pans out into one that would nicely relax an 80,000 crowd before exploding into the popular classic TA songs.
What’s great about Twin Atlantic is that they don’t try to be anything quirky or niche, they just produce cracking music and keep it simple and this works brilliantly on this track. The Album Free is all ready getting big press and this single will just add to it again. The single will come with two remixes, one of the title track Free and one of Yes I Was Drunk.
On top of their impending performances at Leeds/Reading the band are on tour in the Autumn so make sure you get tickets for this very soon.
All in all this single is a definite keeper and one to grab with both hands
