The UK’s most invigorating and rising band, Twin Atlantic, are set to release new album, GLA, on September 9th. Today, they unveil the video for new single “No Sleep“, a track already playlisted on the BBC’s national pop music station Radio 1 where it was named “Hottest Record In The World” and “Track Of The Day” by leading British music bible, Q Magazine. Last week, Zane Lowe premiered the album track “Ex El” on his Beats1 Radio show.
“No Sleep” is a punk rock song led by the guttural bass and guitar riffs of Barry McKenna and Ross McNae climaxing with vocalist Sam McTrusty‘s roar of “I get no sleep” against a driving beat by drummer Craig Kneale and a wall of insomnia-inducing frustration.
Sam McTrusty says: “It’s a simple video, us in our element, our natural environment. Just playing and reacting to the music. We didn’t want to dilute the track with an elaborate visual. The textures projected behind and onto us were inspired by the album art we made for GLA. This is us. This is our music.”
In their native UK, Twin Atlantic are headlining arenas with a plethora of radio hits under their belts. Their live performances are renowned for their infectious energy. GLA was written in the band’s hometown of Glasgow, before repairing to Topanga Canyon in Los Angeles to record the album, working with Jacknife Lee (U2, Snow Patrol, Two Door Cinema Club) who also helmed their 2014 album Great Divide, which reached #6 in the UK album charts, while their dream mixer Alan Moulder (best known for his unforgettable work with Arctic Monkeys, Foals, Foo Fighters and My Bloody Valentine) came aboard to give the album the essential finishing touch.
