Biffy Clyro Return With New Single Instant History

Thursday, 20 February 2020 Written by Jon Stickler

Biffy Clyro have returned with a new single.

Instant History follows a series of cryptic teaser clips and images posted by the Scottish rockers, all featuring the colour blue in a stripe over their eyes. The trio also sent out mysterious postcards direct to fans.

A departure from the guitar-driven sound we're used to hearing, the dance-tinged track was produced by Grammy winner Rich Costey and given its first play as Annie Mac's Hottest Record in The World on BBC Radio 1. It marks the first new music from Biffy since 2019's film soundtrack project 'Balance, Not Symmetry'.

With the follow-up to 2016's 'Ellipsis' due later this year, vocalist Simon Neil said:

“This time around we wanted to lead with something that was the most out there thing which we’ve got on the record. Instant History is the biggest, most slammest pop moment we’ve ever worked on. It’s a fantastic opening statement, although musically it doesn’t reflect the album’s direction. But thematically it’s a good pointer for what the album is about: learning from mistakes and realising how you can move things forward. Things can be similar although they’ll never be the same, but let’s not be scared of that.”
