Biffy Clyro – Opposite

Biffy Clyro songs are like buses. Grandiose, reliable and packing a weighty punch. There’s also that cliche, but let’s not be crass.

Biffy debuted a new track, Opposite, during their appearance on Later With Jools Holland alongside stunning renditions of Stingin’ Belle and Black Chandelier.

Opposite is a subdued and melodic acoustic number. Stripped of gigantic tremblings, the raw lyrics prop up the track while simmering with haunting fear. Opposite is a powerful, emotive track but is never over the top or blatantly crude, instead it delicately flits while whispering about the painful core.
