Klaxons - 'Love Frequency'

Listening to Klaxons’ third album, a disquieting thought recurs: is this really how the former MDMA sages of New Cross Gate imagined their own near future to sound? The trio have spent almost three years recording ‘Love Frequency’ with a...

Album reviews: Klaxons - 'Surfing The Void'...

Forgive us for stating the obvious, but it’s important to remember that ‘Surfing The Void’ is not the album Klaxons wanted to release. If it was, they wouldn’t have handed in whatever gak-prog odyssey it was that they originally did...
