Music Monday 11th February 2019
This is one of my favourite songs to hear live.
The best thing about live music is that no two gigs are ever the same. Even if you see the same band on the same tour and in the same venue two nights in a row, the shows are going to be different. It’s the interaction between the band and fans that makes it so special.
Whenever Biffy plays this song live, the audience - without prompting - starts singing the “Take the pieces and build them skywards“ section of the song, providing natural backing vocals to the band. It’s always a magical moment and adds to an already beautiful song.
