Biffy Clyro declares Billie Eilish the “best thing out of this century so far”

Add Biffy Clyro to the growing list of rockers who are fans of Billie Eilish.

Speaking to NME, frontman Simon Neil declares the “bad guy” singer to be “the best thing out of this century so far.”

“She’s so marvelous,” Neil says. “The fact that she did the Bond tune [‘No Time to Die’] is…brilliant. The way that she handles all the pressure is really exceptional.”

Neil adds that he thinks Eilish’s vocals are “amazing.”

“Kids have as much passion as they ever have,” he says. “It’s so disrespectful to tell them their music doesn’t matter as much.”

Other artists who’ve sung Eilish’s praises include Dave Grohl, Billie Joe Armstrong, Jack White, Thom Yorke and Lana Del Rey.

Biffy Clyro, meanwhile, just premiered their new single “Instant History,” the first preview of their forthcoming eighth studio album.
