Klaxons have shared full details of their new album 'Love Frequency'.
Despite the "new rave" tag, cover versions of trance tracks, and their associations with a new generation of dance music producers and DJs, Klaxons were always a pretty straight-ahead rock band at heart, but a press release for 'Love Frequency' describes their third album as a embracing dance culture (if not actually making club music), "blending the euphoria of today's dance scene with the aesthetics, experimentation and instrumentation of post-punk."
Following daft dance track There Is No Other Time and the Tom Rowlands-produced rock flipside Children Of The Sun, new song Atom To Atom goes right ahead with that idea, a a fairly business-as-usual pop song that chugs along all well and good before exploding into a barrage of breakbeats, piano house keys, and a full-on Chemical Brothers-style rave off.
Check the tracklist below and the cover art – a pill, 'cos it's dance music – above. The band have also announced a few low-key live dates around the South coast, tickets for which can be purchased here.
