Today Already Heard is beginning a new incentive to highlight and champion new music – ‘Song of the Day’. From Monday to Friday, we will be putting the spotlight on a fresh track that you need to hear.

Every week, we aim to showcase a wide range of music, from familiar favourites to emerging bands to DIY newcomers.

Last month, Scottish favourites Twin Atlantic delivered their latest single – ‘Asleep’.

It saw the quartet continue their return to form, following September’s ‘Stuck In a Car With You’‘Asleep’ proves to be a pulsating number with bold guitars and an anthemic chorus.

With drummer Joe Lazarus and guitarist Barry McKenna joining frontman Sam McTrusty and Ross McNae, ‘Asleep’ takes full advantage of Twin Atlantic being a quartet again, especially after their indifferent 2022 outing, ‘Transparency’.

“Asleep was so fun to write and record. We really managed to recapture the joy we’ve felt about being in our weird band our whole adult lives again,” said McTrusty who co-produced the track with McNae. “We feel like it’s the perfect mix of joy, melancholy, serious subject matters, but with a throwaway attitude. Hopefully, it gives people who listen the same injection of excitement it gave us. Can’t wait to play this one live.”

Speaking of live shows, Twin Atlantic will be playing a one-off hometown show at Glasgow’s O2 Academy on Thursday, May 23rd.

They also have a handful of UK dates in March, including supporting Fightstar at London’s OVO Arena Wembley.
