Worth the wait
Klaxons - Surfing The Void

Four years since the release of their acclaimed debut album, Klaxons return with a fresh offering of space-age noise pop. Dragging you at full force into their deranged fantasy world, the cacophony of ‘ExtraAstronomical’ and racket of the title track sit like the soundtrack to a meteor hurtling into a space-ship.

But this is exactly the chaotic energy and underplayed showmanship that made their debut such a success. Combining this pandemonium with a more polished finish on the cosmic pop of ‘Echoes’ and trademark falsetto chants of ‘Venusia’, it’s safe to say ‘Surfing The Void’ was worth the wait.

8/10
