Klaxons hail from Iceland, home of Bjork and Sigur Ros among other bands. In thrall to all that is brightest and best, highest and indeed lowest and most primal in British youth culture, Klaxons see no distinction between celebrating their love of the madness and melodies, the ecstasy and euphoria of early 90s hardcore rave with making some of the brightest, sharpest guitar music around today. The band describe their sound as Josef K-meets-Baby D with a twinkle in their eye, surely the first to mention those names in the same sentence. "We are about fusing the things we listen to constantly," says bassist Jamie Reynolds. "It's about accessible pop music. We're trying to take it back by wanting to make a brilliantly overblown pop record!" They're touring behind their debut album, 'Myths of the Near Future.'
