Do you know what the Simon from Biffy Clyro listened to at his wedding? Any idea of what Ben and his wife rock out to, or which song makes the three band members all tingly inside? Find out what gets Biffy Clyro in the Flow:
Despite a chart topping album in 2013 and after headlining festivals such as Reading and Leeds, Biffy Clyro are still one of the friendliest and most grounded bands around. Biffy Clyro’s 7th studio album Ellipses —released this summer— is described by the band as “the best record we’ve ever made”. Collectively, Biffy Clyro knew that their new album would represent a new turn in their music. Instead of sticking to a waning formula, they wanted to “rewire Biffy and turn it on its head”. “We took sonic influences from a lot of hip-hop for this record”, Simon told us, and you can feel the impact of artists like Kanye West, Kendrick Lamar and A$AP Rocky, on the textured wall of sound which characterizes Ellipses. The road that Biffy have chosen to take might have been perilous to their career but Ellipses is brimming with defiance and new horizons. Biffy Clyro win again.
