Klaxons ‘Surfing The Void’ – Album Review

Klaxons – Surfing The Void A lot has been said about the production process of Klaxons’ second album.  To summarise:  they struggled for about a year in the studio trying to settle on the right sound and direction to take – a struggle that nearly led to them giving up completely.  When they did finally […]
