Hailing from Glasgow, Scotland, Twin Atlantic is composed of Sam McTrusty, Barry McKenna, Ross McNae and Craig Kneale. Having met in 2007 while attending Hutchinson’s Grammer School, and Glasgow School of Art, the group built up a strong reputation both locally and nationally before recording their debut EP, ‘A Guidance from Colour’ in 2008. Now in 2016, the band heads into their highly anticipated 2016 album ‘GLA’. These songs, from riff, to lyric, to guitarist Barry McKenna’s searing lead lines – are possessed of powerful complexity and nuance. The perfect polished pop songs have been ditched, replaced by tracks that are just as compelling, but also possessing new depth and sophistication, while never shedding that primal Twin Atlantic kick. And they are personal and from-the-heart in a way the group have never before delivered.
Twin Atlantic have become the alternative rock band of the moment with the release of their Top 10, critically acclaimed new album ‘GLA’. Their performance on Later With Jools Holland and their triumphant UK tour has shown them to be one of the UK’s best live acts.
