Folding Stars

Biffy Clyro
Biffy Clyro are not cool. For once, however, this is a very good thing, because if they were, there’d be no way in hell that they’d be able to get away with producing such an unashamedly sentimental slice of stadium rock and make it through the rest of the summer alive. Like a lost theme tune from an ’80s John Hughes movie, ‘Folding Stars’ is absolutely fab, but about as far away from the cutting edge as it’s possible to be.
