Klaxons, the London-based four-piece who created quite a buzz with their 2007 Mercury Prize-winning debut Myths of the Near Future, have returned.
A new jam called There Is No Other Time surfaced today – take a listen:
The song is expected to be part of the group’s new album, their third overall and the follow-up to 2010’s Surfing the Void. If you recall (or if you don’t), Klaxons burst onto the music scene with Myths of the Near Future, an album of jarring, groove-based indie/fuzz/New Wave that was led by the single Golden Skans:
Their 2010 sophomore record Surfing the Void and its amusing cover artwork came after their proposed second album was deemed ‘too experimental’ by Polydor Records for the label to consider releasing it. They went back in the studio and gave it another go, resulting in Surfing the Void.
As the new song above implies, Klaxons sound as if they’ve re-focused for the new album, which reportedly will feature collaborations with Tom Rowlands of Chemical Brothers, James Murphy of LCD Soundsystem and DJ Erol Alkan. It seems safe to say that you ought to expect Klaxons to show up at Coachella 2015, judging by the pedigree of tent-ready electro-dance heroes that are taking part in their new record.
The album’s due out sometime in Summer 2014.
