The rain may have been falling and a chill wind blew down Albert Road, but Glasgow’s finest Twin Atlantic were about to raise the temperature inside the Wedgewood Rooms.

Following a lovely opening performance from ME, the always-excellent Excerts took to the stage and whipped the heaving crowd into a musical frenzy ready for the arrival of the headliners.

As the lights dimmed, Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody echoed around the venue, to which the crowd happily sang along, before going wild as Twin Atlantic took to the stage. The Glaswegian four-piece launched straight into their immense set, opening with Edit and the fantastic Time To Stand Up.

The Wedge crowd loved it. It’s been a good while since I’ve seen a crowd react in such an energetic way and it’s easy to see why as Twin Atlantic were incredible. Their catchy lyrics, delivered with a delightful gruff Scottish twang, and thunderous in-your-face riffs, were brilliant.

Twin Atlantic are one of the best live bands I’ve seen in quite some time.
