As they look all set to have their fourth UK number one album confirmed later today, Biffy Clyro have shared a video for the Celebration Of Endings track Space.
“You don’t spend 25 years making music for a living without either collecting your share of the punches or having a strong instinct for self-preservation,” our 8/10 review of the record begins. “Biffy Clyro close their latest album with the words ‘fuck everybody’, a message deliberately left at the very frantic end of Cop Syrup.”
“It’s a song on which otherwise Simon Neil sings about redemption, and contains a middle section with three-minutes-plus of gentle woodwind and acoustic guitar, as if the trio are about to subside into melancholy, happy just to be sad. Far from it. A Celebration of Endings is meant, he’s said, to absolutely jar, to rattle our cages.”
