You can take the boy out of Glasgow, but extracting Glasgow from the boy may be trickier. Last night the Scottish (so very Scottish) pop rock four-piece delighted Camden's Roundhouse – riding high, it seemed, on the back of latest LP The Great Divide.

Twin Atlantic, live in London
Venue: Roundhouse, London
Scottish alt-rockers cross the Great Divide and play the Roundhouse
**Twin Atlantic know how to open a set **
From the off, Twin Atlantic have the crowd enraptured. Opener The Ones That I Love, also the first track from their wildly successful third album The Great Divide, is a slow and heartfelt number that belies the big, crashing sound they’re about to unleash on the Roundhouse. Following it with current single Hold On, they’ve got the crowd singing along to their every word. They might have strayed from their emo-inspired roots for the latest album, but their foray into a more mainstream sound has given them a room full of young fans hanging into their every word.
