Biffy Clyro - Yet Another Scottish Band We Like

A high percentage of friends who trust us to make good concert choices have seen at least one Scottish band in the last 12 months (Alan, Pat, Michelle, Mark, Karen...).  We are certainly partial to the "wall of sound" created by bands like We Were Promised Jetpacks.  But there isn't any common trait of music from Scotland.  Compare Mumford & Sons to Biffy Clyro and you come up with far more differences than similarities.  "Black Chandelier" is the new single by Biffy Clyro.  Within its four minutes and seventeen seconds, it smoothly (sometimes abruptly) transitions between a ballad and an attack of driving guitars - "a rock-power ballad."
