Genre Defying Scott-Rockers Come Up Trumps
Biffy Clyro are a band that you just can't fit into a genre. They're not indie, they're not emo, they're not metal and rock just doesn't do their eclectic mix of melodic guitar riffs and soaring vocals justice. There might only be a few rows of fans in attendance at their early morning Sunday slot, but it doesn't stop Biffy Clyro launching into a new set of innovative and original emo-esque prog rock.
With vocals alternating between both band members and an aural assault to melodic highs, the band are a pleasure to watch. The crowd might be somewhat dilapidated, but for those that are here, there's no doubt that Biffy Clyro are one of the most innovative and original bands at Leeds this year. It's a shame that everyone else is elsewhere watching nondescript indie bands.
