Infiltrating the music scene at a time when it was bulging at the seams with an excess of bland indie-rock bands, Klaxons woke everyone up with a nu-rave explosion. Pioneering the genre they took the dance tunes of the nineties into the present day, mixing them up with their own skewed perspective of alt-indie, and throwing in a dash of pop for good measure. In 2007 they released their debut Myths Of The Near Future, winning them a Mercury Music Prize as well as mainstream acceptance. Numerous awards followed, and fans waited patiently for more material. In 2010 Klaxons finally unveiled their second album, Surfing The Void. It had been a long and hard process for the band, which involved them scrapping numerous sessions to meet their own high standards. Eventually they were content, and Surfing The Void was released. Produced by Ross Robinson who has worked with the likes of Sepultura, Slipknot, At the Drive In and The Cure, it is perhaps unsurprising that the record has a different feel to their debut. Veering towards an alt-rock sound, they pushed their nu-rave signature to the background. Proving to be ever innovative and playful in their musical exploration, Klaxons future path will no doubt be an unpredictable one. But one thing's for sure, it definitely won't be a boring one.
