Over the past year, Klaxons have proved time and time again that they are a mighty force to be reckoned with. Being able to fill dancefloors everywhere with their bizarre cocktail of throbbing bass alongside dizzy keyboard melodies and harmonies that dance with perfection is no mean feat. But to help spawn and pioneer a genre that has thrust itself onto the UK music scene with more of a thunk! than any earthquake in San Fran can claim spells out the work of a genius. Not too shabby for a years work.
The overhaul begins with the highly anticipated debut album ‘Myths Of The Near Future’, due 29th January next year. Spearheading this is gorgeous new single, Golden Skans. It pours out a blissful, mellow sound into the ears, which is a welcome change from the cosmic lads. The fantastic harmonies are there, and are as catchy as ever, setting the backdrop for another chorus shaped to blow your minds. Combined with lyrics that are capable to take you back in time, turn your world upside down and are so clever it hurts, Klaxons are one step closer to becoming unstoppable. When the music is this fucking good, I say we leave them to it. T-Trust!
