Klaxons Show Me A Miracle

Single review: Klaxons – ‘Show Me A Miracle’

It was also going to be tricky to follow up the storming ‘There Is No Other Time’ but in releasing ‘Show Me A Miracle’ Klaxons have failed more than you’d think in its shadow. Not as experimental as their earlier material nor as poppy as their most recent single, it falls between two chairs and […]

Klaxons There Is No Other Time

Single review: Klaxons – ‘There Is No Other Time’

The first cut from their upcoming third album is brilliant. Having fallen out of love with the band after their first album – their second passed me by – ‘There Is No Other Time’ brings the relationship back into focus. Though different from the likes of ‘Golden Skans’ and ‘It’s Not Over Yet’, it’s a […]

Klaxons There Is No Other Time

Single review: Klaxons – ‘There Is No Other Time’

The first cut from the band’s third album Love Frequency, ‘There Is No Other Time’ is a surprising change of direction, possibly down to their work with Gorgon City on this piece. There’s certainly a more dance focussed feeling to it and it just about skates around familiar territory to deliver something that’s both poppy […]
