Twin Atlantic: TRNSMT couldn’t be closer to home


It competence be the first time TRNSMT festival has taken place in Glasgow, but for one act they couldn’t be closer to home.

Local rope Twin Atlantic, who’ve just come back from ancillary System of a Down in Moscow, are personification on the Sunday line-up.

Front man Sam McTrusty said: “It couldn’t be closer for us, you could substantially magnitude it metres, how distant divided the theatre is from the operation rooms.

“It’s the closest door-to-door gig we could do.”

The four-piece stone rope are from Glasgow and use in studios right on Glasgow Green where the first TRNSMT is holding place.

“The Glasgow Green has been used for decades and decades – it used to be common space, we meant people used to hang their washing there back in the day.

“It’s always been renewed and found a opposite use, either for concerts or just for people to walk their dogs.

“Our drummer Craig runs by it to get to the use space. It’s a big space, close to the water, it’s a cold place to horde an eventuality like this,” explains Sam.

Twin Atlantic are no strangers to personification in front of a Scottish crowd, and have enjoyed personification T in the Park by the years.

They headlined the BBC Radio 1 Stage on the Saturday at T 2015.

“Compared to T in the P it’ll be very different. Time will tell if that’s a good or bad thing.

“I consider it’s going to open a whole entrance of possibilities. Maybe they’ll thesis it some-more to focusing on bands like this year is,” continues Sam.

“The city festival is flattering renouned via Europe, so that’s cool.

“I’m really up for it – if we wasn’t personification I’d really be going – we consider that says it all,” he laughed.

On Sunday Twin Atlantic will play between Blossoms and Two Door Cinema Club before Biffy Clyro headline.

“The TRNSMT choice is one of the better line ups I’ve seen this summer. There’s not many billings that come close to this. It would be almost ridiculous to not knowledge this one,” says Sam.

“Obviously this is the home town, but we were astounded to be enclosed on the check since every other rope has had a series one manuscript in the UK. We aren’t utterly at that tallness nonetheless nonetheless we have managed top ten, but it is insane to be enclosed in such a prestigious bill.”

“I’ve schooled over the last decade, you can’t count on anything when it comes to live music, generally when it comes to festivals.

“Yes we are from Glasgow but we are walking out there with an open mind. We need the throng to spin up for us.

“We have such different songs and we take people on a rollercoaster float with the set from start to finish so in sequence for them to really enjoy it they need to give us that appetite and passion back.

“I’m certain with a little bit of magic, we can meet in the center and make something noted happen.”
