Split personality

Tenderness and noise, strings and screams, mild-mannered yet angry… AEREOGRAMME have always come across as a band of beautiful contradiction.

The nice guys of post-rock have been a fixture of the Glasgow music scene for nearly a decade and the realisation that they will be playing their last-ever gig on Friday makes us genuinely sad.

While most bands fail to exhibit any hint of possessing more than one string to their bow, Aereogramme really did offer the best of both worlds. Assuming, that is, the first world is filled with delicate ballads while the second one spins to the sound of thrash metal.

With three albums released on Chemikal Underground to remember them by, the bearded quartet’s contribution to the rich tapestry of Scotland’s recent musical landscape will not be forgotten by us nor, indeed, their curiously large following in the Netherlands. Like we said, Aereogramme are full of surprises.
