New rave pioneers Klaxons arrive for their debut show at den Atelier as they promote third album, “Love Frequency”.
Klaxons have been around since early 2007. Their debut album, Myths Of The Near Future along with its main single ‘Golden Skans’ were massive hits that year and it also won them a Mercury Music Award.
Its follow up was beset my production difficulties, with a first draft of the album rejected by their label because it was “too experimental”. Made less experimental Surfing The Void would go on to make the top ten all over the world while generally gaining favourable reviews.
Now back with a new LP, Love Frequency, Klaxons have returned to what made their debut such a hit, good, fun, slightly quirky pop songs that made to dance to. Recorded with what the NME calls “a cast of ‘computer music’ luminaries including James Murphy, Erol Alkan, Gorgon City and Tom Rowlands of The Chemical Brothers”.
Love Frequency has garnered mixed reviews--the NME gave it 7 out of 10, while Pitchfork was less generous and marked it with a 5.1.
