Mountains

Biffy Clyro
The weird thing about Biffy Clyro is that when they write songs that jump between time signatures like a frog evading a hammer, they’re more often than not utterly brilliant. But when they play it straight and radio-friendly, something gets lost in translation. ‘Mountains’ fits into the latter category. With its big, bare-chested chorus it’ll doubtless further their much-deserved march to massiveness, but it’s not quite vintage Biff.
