Art school confidential


I really haven’t talked much about the Klaxons this year although I’ve been quietly enjoying and coming to grips with their sound and aim. Emphasing the incorporation of in-your-face-visuals into already fierce tunes makes them a clever, enterprising group ready to push multi-media into lister/viewer eyes and brains. “Gold Skans,” the new single from their forthcoming album Myths Of The Near Future, has quickly joined my favorite Klaxons tunes. It combines Fischerspooner-influenced theatrics with art-geek superheroic themes and a sensational hook. If there was ever a commercial advocating MDMA use by the Brits, this would be it, regardless if it makes sense. Whether or not they match this intensity again, I’m looking forward to January 29th, the release date of the album.
