Music: Biffy Clyro unveil stingin’ new song
Stingin’ Belle is the first track taken from Biffy’s Clyro’s upcoming new album, Opposites.
Track: Biffy Clyro – Stingin’ Belle
File under: a triumphal return for the idiosyncratic Scots rockers… we particularly like the bagpipes, along with the prickly line: ‘You think you’re cool like a porcupine’
Describing Opposites as a “weird” album, frontman Simon Neil reckons that Stingin’ Belle is a good representation of what people can expect when the record is released later this year.
“It was one of the first songs that really clicked when we were recording it. It represents the record and It shows how over-the-top the record is. It might be our last really over-the-top record.”
He added: “We’re still keeping things musical, still being as weird as we’ve always been.”
Biffy Clyro will appear at London’s Roundhouse on September 22 as part of the month-long iTunes festival.
