New Klaxons Track, 'Flashover' - What Do You Think?

By Tim Chester

Posted on 25 May 10


So, after twelve and a half years, six scrapped albums, dismissed producers and with 2012 edging ever closer, Klaxons release something new: ‘Flashover’. So what does it sound like? It’s loud. It’s more demented than a frazzled lunatic sweltering ominously on a London bendy bus in the sun. It sounds like it was recorded in a cave on the moon by a Gregorian Locust covers band. It’s a Lightning Bolt from the deep blue. It sounds….Klaxonsesque.


Mostly though, it’s a gloriously rambling and frantic few minutes that bodes well for the single proper next month – and maybe even them finishing their mooted album trilogy before the four horsemen come to zap us into oblivion.

What do you think of the track?
